In the same way Liliana Ovalle incorporates into her designs the incidences of improvised functionality in everyday situations into her designs, her use of colour is just as unexpected and illuminating in its suggestion of how a piece of furniture might be interpreted. A continuation of her Colour Me series, these pieces feature consistent geometric designs that conform to our table and stool-shaped conventions blocked out in vibrant colour on well-crafted, edgy wooden forms.
Now showing at Plusdesign Gallery in Milan, THE CHROMA SEASON is a development of a quite specific design vernacular that produces “perceptual effects” through the application of colour in different opacities and different positions, simulating three dimensionality and “unexpected depth.”
THE CHROMA SEASON will be on show until June 30.
