Design Crush: Scholten & Baijings for HAY

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 · 5 Comments

Update: just came across a website that sells these textiles in the U.S.!

This week’s design crush is a bit different… instead of pulling cool objects from across the internets, I’m focusing on a specific designer I’m crushing on at the moment. This week it’s Scholten & Baijings, a Dutch design duo whose textile designs for Danish company HAY were featured on fine ting ogsjokolade. HAY is known for its innovative furniture including their award-winning “Nobody” chair – the first to be entirely fabricated of fabric!

However, it’s Scholten & Baijings’ line I can’t get enough of – simple, modern designs with a bold, slightly ’80’s color palette of gray, hot pink, magenta and neon green.

HAY’s ambition is to encourage Danish furniture design’s return to the innovative greatness of the 1950’s and 1960’s but in a contemporary context through our commitment to the design and production of furniture and accessories with an international appeal.

Here’s what I’m digging…







And tea towels…
