materialized in textiles and products. It is also a standardized
element in the product design industry and a matter of research for
Hella Jonguerious to bring new possibilities to the field. Based on
Josef Albers studies, there is a difference between the physical
aspect of colors and the way our eyes perceived them. He explore optical effects such the duotone, seen in Kvadrat textiles and
products for Vitra. As director of Color and Material Library for Vitra, Jonguerious has been working with the limitations and standards of color in the industry and collaborating with other designers –
authors. Recognizing the missing qualities of color and texture on products, she has been conducting studies to open new directions. Color can be seen as constant changing element, because it
depends of ligh, materiality, context and our own perception and memory, being a subjective entity. The work of Hella opens new paths of how color works and can be applied on products: working with the implications of the industry but pushing new possibilities aswell.
