Truly Dutch is a new series of ‘Conversation Pieces for the Interior’ and M.E. has been talking non-stop about them recently.
They're designed by duo Scholten & Baijings; made by artists and master craftsmen; and produced in conjunction with Zuiderzee Museum, Enkhuizen The Netherlands.
The typically Dutch collection comprises five items of furniture that constitutes a contemporary interpretation of five masterpieces from the Zuiderzee Museum’s collection: Marker kast (Marken cabinet), Hangoortafel (drop-leaf table), Flap-aan-de-wand (tilt-top table), Butte (wooden travel case) and Knopstoel (pegged chair). The visual images have been applied to the objects using different decorative techniques.
This new work carries the typical contemporary Scholten & Baijings signature: minimalist design and use of colour, layers, transparency, grids, structures, textures and patterns, but additionally working with traditional crafts such as hand-painted work, screen printing, willow braiding and glass-blowing.
