The Subjectivity of Colour, The Design Museum

The Design Museum in collaboration with Disegno brings together leading designers to discuss the subjectivity of colour. Held on Tuesday 22nd August, the public talk addresses our approach to understanding colour. Most colour theories have emerged through personal experiences but with the industrialisation of colour, subjectivity has been lost, narrowing our interpretations. Get colour tips for your coffee shop and be inspired by leading designers who are experts in defining colour.
