Designed by Studio Stefan Scholten

Industrial designer Stefan Scholten (1972) has become one of the defining voices in world-renowned Dutch Design after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1995. He is known for his reductionist design style combined with a unique use of colour. His designs are functional and applicable, but always expressive. Scholten’s approach is also known as the atelier-method-of-working. During the design process, he thinks with his hands as much as possible. He will keep on sketching, drawing and mixing colours until an original and new design emerges. Based in Amsterdam, the studio designs for a variety of well-respected brands, such as HAY, Moroso, Maharam, Cappellini and 1616 / arita japan. In 1998 Stefan Scholten (Copray & Scholten) designed the ‘Relay’ Chaise Longue for Artifort, and for more than 20 years these Relays have been located at various places in the piers of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and used heavily on a daily basis. In 2020, Stefan Scholten (Scholten & Baijings) designed the Soft Facet armchair for Artifort.
