The Amsterdam Armoire designed for UK Brand Establishe & Sons is a typically Dutch design, a traditional piece of furniture taking on a contemporary form. With two upper doors, a drawer over the full weight and two under doors, the front color pattern is made from a ‘High Pressure Laminate’ (HPL) sheet. The two round feet are made of light pink hand-blown glass.
The inside of every door pictures a still life. These still lives are made in collaboration with the Dutch photographers Maurice Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes, depicting the work method of Scholten & Baijings and made with paper and cardboard models of the design duo. The shelves and the drawer are covered with a printed grid.
