A rich assemblage of graphic markings defines the "ELEMENTS" series of lead crystals. Cuts and textures of various depth and intensity are employed across glasses to create a landscape of layered pattern that is fresh and seductive; a whole new take on the decoration of cut crystal.
After creating an extensive range of cuts, Scholten & Baijings built these up on individual glasses and over glass typologies. Working with 'palettes' (although these are more frequently of color or material) is key to this Dutch design duo's work.
The beauty of the "ELEMENTS" series is that each glass, alone, is a desirable object but together the mixture of designs is something very different altogether. Scholten & Baijings have acted like a conductor, building up layers of pattern as though they were sound, and the result is a visual symphony.
