INTERVIEW WITH SCHOLTEN & BAIJINGS ON 13EIGHTY CHAIR
13EIGHTY CHAIR bY SCHOLTEN & BAIJINGS
Known for their keen eye for color, the design couple Stephan Scholten and Carole Baijings have designed a range of products from tea towels and blankets to porcelain and notebooks together with HAY. The duo had yet to design a piece of furniture for the HAY collection when Rolf asked them to design what would become the 13Eighty chair.
13Eighty took two years to develop with a lot of adjusting of the holes to create the maximum amount of flexibility and comfort while still remaining a durable long-lasting chair.
“Plastic is an interesting material, but very hard, giving this perforation a special texture”, says Stephan Scholten.
