"Breathing Color" exhibit at the Design Museum
It has been a while since I last visited the Design Museum in Kensington and this exhibition provided an exquisite opportunity to go again. Lead by Hella Jongerius, an acclaimed Dutch designer, the numerous installations displayed takes a deeper look at the color behaves, exploring shapes, materials, shadows and reflections. One particular installation caught my eye, where it examined the behavior of color under different qualities of light. It pointed out a problem of how products could look less attractive if the lighting conditions at the store are not met. It proposed that designers could observe how color behaves and thus design dynamic experiences that change according to its environment. It was a keen reminder of how we still have yet to fully realize the potential provided by our senses in everyday design.
