dutch design duo scholten & baijings ‘the amsterdam armoire’ is now in production for british design and manufacturing company established & sons. presented during milan design week 2010, the wardrobe unit is a typically traditional dutch design taking on a contemporary form. it consists of two upper doors, a drawer over the full weight and two lower doors.

scholten & baijings trademark grid pattern is found on the front of the armoire which is made from high pressure laminate (HPL) sheet. the unit’s front legs are two round feet made of hand-blown glass in light pink. featured inside each of the doors, is a black and white picture of a still life. these six images were made in collaboration with dutch photographers maurice scheltens and liesbeth abbenes, and depict the couple’s work.
