designed for the exhibition at the art institute of chicago, ‘colour installation’ re-envisions the presentation of scholten & baijings’s extensive work by making connections between their design practice and their multiple collaborations with artisans and manufacturers. the duo’s color mastery is illustrated in a multi-layered assemblage of pieces selected including ‘colour porcelain’, reimagined tableware for the japanese company 1616 / arita. referencing historic japanese ceramics and color spectrums, the designers produced a collection influenced by asian craftsmanship, that stays true to stefan scholten and carole baijings’ dutch roots.

from creating furnishings for the danish manufacturer HAY, tables for the japanese artisanal wood manufacturer karimokou new standard to a contemporary silver tea set for georg jensen, the exhibit highlights material innovation paired down to its essential form.

the large-scale images integrated into the installation focuses on the detail and play of color in the work produced by dutch photographers scheltens & abbenes, ultimately capturing the relationships and frame connections between the various lines and pattern in scholten & baijings’s work.
