ARTIST/DE­SIGN­ERS WHO HAVE BEEN AN EN­DUR­ING IN­FLU­ENCE? Charles and Ray Eames [11], be­cause of their hus­band-wife col­lab­o­ra­tion and the uniquely per­sonal clas­sics they de­signed. CON­TEM­PO­RARY ART THAT YOU MOST ADMIRE? The work of James Tur­rell [7] is a good ex­am­ple of a con­sis­tent whole. His work is very in­spir­ing: min­i­mal­is­tic, colour­ful and very au­then­tic! WHAT ARE YOUR FASH­ION MUST HAVES? I love white boots [13]! FAVOURITE WATCH? I pre­fer rings and ear­rings: my favourite brands are Re­possi and So­phie Bille Brahe [12]. FRA­GRANCE OF CHOICE? Olene by Dip­tyque [2]. I love jas­mine. MU­SIC WHAT’S ON RO­TA­TION AT OF­FICE AND HOME? It re­ally varies from Os­car and the Wolf [10], Ed Sheeran and Shawn Men­des to One Kiss by Calvin Har­ris: this year’s sum­mer hit! FAVOURITE F LOW­ERS? Glo­riosa [1]. Bright but light and frag­ile. BEST DOWN­TIME IF YOU EVER HAVE ANY PUR­SUIT? Go­ing out for a swim on our boat with my boys. DO YOU EN­TER­TAIN AT HOME? We have nice din­ners in the gar­den of our stu­dio with friends, fam­ily and col­leagues, with one of our pri­vate chefs, Robert Adolf­s­son, co­or­di­na­tor of Food Non Food at the De­sign Academy in Eind­hoven. WHAT IS YOUR PRE­FERRED TIP­PLE? I hardly ever drink al­co­hol, but if I do then it’s usu­ally an Aperol spritz or limon­cello. FILM THAT HAS IN­SPIRED YOU? Call Me By Your Name [8] is a great love story but I speci cally like the time they have to hang around the swim­ming pool and do noth­ing. So jeal­ous, ha ha! SHOPS A ND O NLINE S TORES YOU F REQUENT? Match­es­fash­ion. com and Net-a-porter.com. I love beau­ti­ful clothes. DOES YOUR LOVE OF DE­SIGN EX­TEND TO CARS? Yes, still look­ing for­ward to de­sign­ing our own real car in the near fu­ture! TRAVEL FAVOURITE REG­U­LAR HAUNT AND WHAT IS ON YOUR

I love the Mal­dives [5]; only beach, sun and sand. LIST A FEW OB­JECTS OF DE­SIRE THAT YOU WOULD BUY RIGHT NOW? The work of pho­tog­ra­pher Vi­viane Sassen [14]. We al­ready own one of her pieces but would love more. And more work by artist Maria Roosen [9], one of our all-time favourites! WHAT PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOK­ING FOR­WARD TO? Lon­don De­sign Fes­ti­val when we will cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary in­stal­la­tion at the his­toric Fort­num & Mason store in Pic­cadilly. TELL US ABOUT YOUR COL­LAB­O­RA­TION WITH HERMAN MILLER AND MAHARAM? We [Scholten & Bai­jings] de­signed the ‘Mesh’ [4], ‘Trac­ery’ and ‘Pare’ tex­tiles [3] si­mul­ta­ne­ously with the Colour­form Sofa Group we cre­ated for Herman Miller [6]. We can­not re­sist when de­sign­ing a sofa to also vi­su­alise the up­hol­stery and vice versa. Speci cally cho­sen colours for ‘Pare’, one of our new tex­tiles for Maharam, are spe­cially quilted for Herman Miller. With sim­ple de­signs like ours, the colours and de­tails have to be per­fect. For the sofa, we cre­ated ‘Trac­ery’ for Maharam that com­bines a sin­gle-colour look with the tex­ture and in­ter­est of pat­tern. scholtenbai­jings.com; livingedge.com.au
