    ST SC 02 Arita by Studio Stefan Scholten

    Earthy light grey with just the right amount of character. Named after the Japanese town, 02 Arita is inspired by Scholten’s Paper Porcelain tableware collection for the local ceramics brand 1616 / arita, made out of a clay specially developed to match the colour of original paper models at the studio. A colour that works across three materials: paper, porcelain and paint.

    1 L of our paint covers approximately:

    — 9 m2, when painted in one layer
    — 4,5 m2, when painted in two layers
    — 3 m2, when painted in three layers 

    We recommend to use primer beneath your paint, when necessary. Read our guide here on when to use primer. Otherwise, two layers of paint are enough for the main part of our colours, unless otherwise stated above, in our product description. 

    We are offering our paint in 2 L and 5 L. Assuming you will paint in two layers, 

    — Blēo, 5 L covers: 5 L x 4.5 m2 = 22.5 m2 finished surface
    — Blēo, 2 L covers: 2 L x 4.5 m2 = 9 m2 finished surface

    Still in doubt?

    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.
