Johannes Itten once said, “Only those who love colour are admitted to its beauty and immanent presence. It affords utility to all, but unveils its deeper mysteries only to its devotees.”
As a self-confessed colour devotee, I’ll be summoning the full spectrum for our next edition of Design Futures – Colour Visions.
Visitors will be treated to an exclusive exhibition of Australian debuts, custom installations and leading new products as both local and international designers respond to the personal and universal phenomenon of colour.
Don’t miss Godfrey Hirst’s collaboration with New Black to produce a custom gradient floorscape in their unique Designer Jet carpet, or the Australian debut of the incredible RGB Wallpaper designs by Carnovsky in partnership with Safari Living.
Bespoke designs by Marc Pascal, North St Flowers and Rowena Martinich will also be presented alongside our select Design Futures contributors. Stay tuned for more glimpses of this Decoration+Design exclusive over the coming weeks.
Genty Marshall represents a new generation in design trend analysis and forecasting. Within this age of trend-watchers, the editing of information to provide a basis for action is a specialised skill. The careful selection of relevant and actionable trends for a diverse range of clients was the guiding principle for Genty to start her own international consultancy, New Black Global Trends.
Design Futures at Decoration + Design has provided an inspirational jumping point for many interior designers and architects, providing an inspired look at the future; how that future influences the way we live, interact, socialise and work; and how that in turn affects design.
Design Futures returns to Melbourne at Decoration + Design from 19 – 22 July 2012 – registrations are now open so you can register to visit and witness Genty’s fourth installment of this inspiring trend platform.
