with the 'colour bin' and 'colour wood dining' table.
top view of the containers which are available in three sizes
the 'colour bin' collection is comprised of a series of coloured containers which are made from kuri wood.
available in three different sizes, each of the vessels has their own colour palette which range from soft pastels to fluourescent pink,
indicative of scholten & baijings' application of contrasting tones seen in their body of work. each bin is made using
traditional woodworking joinery techniques finished with a special lacquer which enables the application of a transparent
high quality colour to the wood itself.
'colour wood dining'
the 'colour wood dining' table is an extension of the duo's previous 'colour wood' sidetables. this design draws on the same
visual language of its predecessor, and is embellished with a dotted pattern. the object is the result of considerations
based on the characteristics of thinned wood as well as traditional woodworking methods. small diameter timber is joined to form a volume,
the symbolic layers of a contemporary view on conventional shades and techniques, achieved by superimposing different layers of
colours and patterns. the texture of the wood is overlayed with the surface pattern, creating a depth in the stained and printed furniture piece.
