Like their subtle, well thought-out and far-ranging designs, Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings need not shout to relay their identity.

Scholten, a Design Academy Eindhoven alum, and Baijings, a self-taught designer, joined forces in 2000.

Rooted in Amsterdam, Scholten & Baijings runs with 12 young designers who help accommodate clients like Maharam, Mini, Herman Miller, Samsung, Karimoku New Standard, Georg Jensen, Victoria & Albert Museum and 1616/Arita Japan.
