Visual Currency


Although Dutch studio Scholten & Baijings ceased operations last year, with Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings now pursuing their own creative paths, the products they designed together live on. The studio created one of the most iconic collection­s of Japanese design brand Karimoku New Standard – one that has impressive­ly retained its visual currency through the years. The Colour Wood collection of tables and chairs was inspired by the traditiona­l Japanese wood joint technique yatoi-sanetsugi. The barrel-like base of the table consists of individual laths that have been connected at intricate angles to create a round, tapered form. In Singapore, Karimoku New standard is available from Stylecraft.
