The exhibition, entitled Over the Rainbow, was created as part of Design Parade – a three-day festival that centred around a competition for young designers, for which Scholten & Baijings sat on the judging panel.

The selection of furniture and product design brings together work from across the lifespan of the Amsterdam studio, which was founded in 2000 by designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings.

The colour palette formed by the selected designs was chosen to reflect hues from the villa's swimming pool and the surrounding landscape.
