I think of the people who will be using or living in the space. Is it an apartment or townhouse, farmhouse or office building, a restaurant, or a brand store? I try to understand the function of the place – what will be going on there? Colors are not just colors. They are related to the material and the function.
I do not have one recipe for how I design a color scheme. To me, it’s more about balance and a sense of coherence in the spaces I work with. An interplay between people, functionality, light, objects, and color. I believe in essential emotions that I often turn to – calmness, wildness, humor, temperament, vibrancy, flow, tension, something that feels crisp. It is about finding the balance between them.
Outside of paint and tiles, we produce hand-painted wallpapers, textile, and bespoke objects. At the core of all our products lays a natural interest in materials. Lava stone, soil, water, sun, and air are core ingredients in our products, and in many ways in life in general. We try to balance these elements to create spaces that feel unified. Like an oil painting consisting of layers of brushstrokes and colors that we experience as a whole when looking at it.
