Botanical Modernism: Colour

Botanical Modernism is a contemporary utopian direction that seeks to balance utilitarian design and creativity. The physical and psychological need for tactility, plants and imperfection is brought together with the clarity of digital spaces that we experience in virtual reality and on-screen.

Architectural lines and mathematical structures are brought to life with living colours and materials that grow and evolve, nurturing our mind and body as they mature. Surfaces, textiles and spaces are tempered by biophilic design that conceals the technology helping to streamline our lives.

The core palette of warm Concrete, Ash and mineral Blue Shale provides a bedrock for verdant Green Teal and Reseda Green. Botanical hues are complemented with the earthy, human symbolism of Venetian Red. Fresh floral mid-tones in Yellow Peony and Pink Dahlia provide uplifting accents, while lighter chalky pastels in Ming Green and Rosaline soften and soothe.
