Scholten & Badjings Emphasizes Color With New Collection for Herman Miller


Already lengthy, Scholten & Baijings’s roster of collaborators expanded with ColourForm, a chromati- cally motivated seating family for Herman Miller. The partnership is new, however the principles remain the same. “We emphasize color, so our patterns are always quite minimal,” Carole Baijings says. In this case, the upholstery drapes like folded blankets over the exposed walnut or ash frames of the sofas and club chairs. Which brings us to Maharam. She and Stefan Scholten turned to their frequent collaborator to customize ColourForm’s fabrics. Tracery, for example, is a nylon-wool solid with a subtle texture developed by hand-sewing grids on cardboard, then fabric. hermanmiller.com; maharam.com
