Assemble with Purpose
Opting for undemanding and inherently soothing tonal colour groups is a natural response to threat and anxiety. Adding visual interest is the challenge; but with a little precise interruption, blandness can be averted.

This is where colour meets context; and this week we're sharing some of the material applications for the soft utilitarian hues from our SS 2021 Colour Material & Finish (CMF) forecast

Varying levels of red and yellow underpin this analogous group. From the shaded true red of Cordovan through mid-tone orange Brick, the rounded warmth of Pink Plaster and golden Beeswax.

In Context

The tonal metallic offset design of the Vogue wallcovering by Omexco and the gradient colour and relief of Aleksadra Gaca's Bloko cushions illustrate the simple effectiveness of tonal puzzles. Bringing complementaries into a more complex design, Claire Vos's carpets for Moooi are intriguing yet calm.
