Designhuis is the only museum in the Netherlands that is focussing solely on design and applied arts. Setup by Lidewij Edelkoort in 2007 and left in 2009, the museum developed in a short periode a well known profile. In march 2010 the exhibtion Kleur- Colour took place, highlighting the meaning of colour in contemporary design.
Color is provoking feelings, associations and reactions. Colour is influencing atmospheres of interiors till the appeal of a product. In what way are designers dealing and using colour in their work and what is the role of psychology, zeitgeist and culture in this circumstance. Curated by Yksi Ontwerp, we were asked to participate in the exhibition within the sub-theme Colour and Nature. We showed the most complete overview so far of our vegetable colours, from colour cards to dyed textile.
