Studio Stefan Scholten 


Stefan Scholten has become one of the defining voices in world-renowned Dutch Design after leading his own design agency since 1995. Based in Amsterdam, the studio designs for a variety of well-respected brands, such as HAY, Maharam, Cappellini, Desso, Lensvelt, Paola Lenti, Forbo and 1616 / arita japan.


Since October 2021, he is the Creative Director of wallpaper producer BN. 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.
