Colour in Textiles
Posted on October 18, 2010
Surround yourself in colour and pattern, its nourishes the soul!
Journey with Herman Miller creative consultant Susan Lyons as she talks about her creative process and colour practice. In this post we examine what drives colour creation at Herman Miller. Alexander Girard was once quoted to say:
It is important to have colour around you, pattern around you because it is nourishing.
Someone else who believe naked walls do nothing for the soul!
In this video Susan talks about design and colour and takes a very pragmatic approach to colour theory:
We don’t have colour theory we have colour practice: we keep practising until we get it right.
We also explore their sustainable production facility and the immense change Alexander Girard brought to a world covered in gray, black and white.
Wallcoverings are a fashion item that delight the soul, put them up, pull them down, put something else up in its place. Nourish your space!
