Sofa series by Scholten en Baijings for Herman Miller – Salone 2017

— by Mary Hessing 29-05-17

Scholten & Baijings designed a sofa, armchair and chaise longue for Herman Miller that look as if blankets have been folded over their backs. It sounds simple but it isn’t, not in the slightest. The models are meticulously detailed and both the shape and the colour palette are utterly sophisticated. The colourings of the wooden frame and the lining are tone-on-tone. The fabrics are by Maharam as well as by Scholten & Baijings.

Juriaan Booy made a lovely film-portrait of the duo.
