Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings Layer Color in New Textile for Maharam

The former partners of Scholten & Baijings, Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings, who will work under their own names going forward, introduce Shift, a textile for Maharam. The designers have previously applied their delicate precision and color prowess to other fabrics for the brand—Blocks and Grids in 2014, Mesh and Tracery in 2017—that similarly tinkered with scale, grids, and dimensionality.

For Shift, the duo cut paper models to play with layering color, an effect reproduced in a dimensional matelassé that blends cotton, solution-dyed nylon, and polyester. The eight colorways include Pewter, Sapphire, Copper, and Honeysuckle, some with proprietary fluorescent yarns, but all employed to eye-popping effect.

“The matelassé construction translates our double-layered framework from paper to textile,” says Baijings.
