Concept

The type of furniture that the Amsterdam Armoire is based upon is a typically Dutch design. Scholten & Baijings have reworked the traditional archetype of 17th century cabinets, painted by their owners with scenes and still-lives from their surroundings, into a contemporary form. With their interpretation, the interior of the armoire features printed pattern and still life pictures on each door. The stilllives are made in collaboration with photographers, Maurice Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes. They depict the work method of Scholten & Baijings, showing paper and cardboard models of their work. Amsterdam Armoire has four doors, a drawer and its two round feet are made of pale pink, hand-blown glass.
