d. After their breakthrough in Milan last year they acquired a lot of attention: exhibitions in Amsterdam, London, San Francisco, Kortrijk, Cologne and Paris followed. The duo design products for their own collection and for manufacturers such as Artifort
and Marko. MDF Italia, for which they are currently designing, may be the next manufacturer on their list. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has bought two chairs of Copray & Scholten. Their work has been published in a variety of national and internati
onal media. In their designs Copray & Scholten aim for a durable and logical connection between comfort and construction, making use of clear lines and transparent forms. In Milan '99 the duo showed an interior concept consisting of units that are
independent of the surrounding architecture. They presented units for bathing, eating, working, resting and sleeping.
