Monday's quick start: Color Collision

Color Collision from Rogier Arents on Vimeo.

I just love starting a week on Bloesem with some spectecular ceramics ...

Who would have thought that the pigment of a red cabbage could have such a strong color impact!

Read more here about what dutch designers Kristie van Noort and Rogier Arents discovered when mixing ceramics and red cabage 'soup' perhaps easiest to watch the short movie first ... you will love it!





Completely different but just as stunning is the Cornewll collection from Kristie van Noort. The shape and pastel color make this the perfect tableware for me.

Monday's quick start: Cryptographer & Encoded Textiles by Raw Color


Secret codes bleached into your cotton with hidden messages...it does sound a bit Science Fiction but it is real!

This project: Cryptographer & Encoded Textiles was designed by Dutch collective Raw Color. Daniera ter Haar & Christoph Brach are Raw Color and they work on self initiated and commissioned projects in their Eindhoven based studio.

Cryptographer & Encoded Textiles made it's debut last April at Salone del Mobile 2012. Together with Remon van den EijndenPeter BustBart van der Linden, and Studio Watt, they created a project that was inspired by cryptography or in other words 'code language' which was often used in World War I and II to secure communication and information when in the presence of a third party.

What they developed was a new way to make use of a Cryptographer that generates patterns by translating words into a code, controlled by text messaging making each letter or character transform into a specified icon....                    MORE

I mean how cool is that now you can have your own personal message encoded into a cloth making it extra special to have or to give..

If you want to learn more about this technique I would suggest you take a look hereRawtextiles9

Permanent Blue

I really enjoyed this invitation from Dutch website Kleurinspiratie (=ColorInspiration) to create a color board for them... I choose the color Blue, my favorite at the moment.

a couple of words what colors and especially the color blue mean to me.. "Hier bij de Zee"... just a DUtch song that pops up in my head when looking at the collage above. And that's what colors do to you... they bring a feeling, an association with a memory or an emotion.

Spring is here and summer is approaching, a perfect moment to bring one of the many types of beautiful blues in your house.

Blue stands for fresh and cool, but also warm and funky. If you don't want to over-do it then  just add a small detail. Blue is probably the most universal color and you don't get easily bored with blue.

According to Pantone indigo (the deep dark blue) is the trend for 2012 for interior design. The experts say indigo stands for peace and inner rest. What more could you want? Where black prevailed in recent years it is now time for his lighter brother Indigo. I can't think of a color that doesn't go well with it."

Kleurinspiratie also asked me a couple of questions and my answers are right here in Dutch or the translated version
