• Yarn — a paint colour developed by Studio Stefan Scholten for Blēo
ST SC 07 Yarn by Studio Stefan Scholten

Dark grey with a hint of blue and green. A full, elegant tone full of personality. Not an obvious choice, the dark colour is based on a beloved piece of dyed wool yarn found in the studio. This colour works particularly well in textiles. Translating it to a wall gives a lot of character to the room.

Atelier by Studio Stefan Scholten

Stefan Scholten is a studio designer. He takes a thinking-hand approach, developing products by drawing, building paper models and hand-mixing colours. The Atelier palette refers to existing products, materials, and tools in the studio. It is as interesting on its own as when combined with materials normally found in the interior—porcelain, textile, wood. 14 colours accent and balance to create a harmonious yet vivid environment.

Portrait of designer Stefan Scholten for Scandinavian colour and design house, Blēo.

Stefan Scholten has become one of the defining voices of Dutch design, graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1995. The Amsterdam-based designer is known for a reductionist style combined with an idiosyncratic use of colour, working with clients such as Maharam, Cappellini and 1616 / arita japan. His designs are functional and applicable, but always expressive, the result of an atelier-method-of-working. During the design process, he thinks with his hands as much as possible—sketching, modelling and mixing colours until an original and new idea or object emerges.
