The Colours Lab — Colours systems
The Colours Lab introduces a parallel between sciences and arts to provide a better understanding of the attributes of colours. Using colours implies to understand how they relate to one another. For centuries, scientists and artists have been trying to give logical, rational and aesthetic orders to colours. Nowadays, various systems such as the Natural Colour System, RAL or Pantone allow the various intermediaries of production processes to have one common reference point.
The Colours of Berlin — Functional Colours
The Colours of Berlin studies the diversity of the places and roles colours have in our urban environment. Since the 19th century and the development of the city, Berlin has had to conceive new signaletic elements to make the city readable to its dwellers and strollers. Berlin is yellow and orange among others. Using public transportation, sorting waste and finding a service or shop are examples of the many conventions that rely on functional colours.
The Yellow Room
The Colour Room focuses on a specific colour to explore its multiple significations and nuances. Colour of the sun and of the light, yellow conveys values of youth, life and Spring. Because of its high visibility, it is also used as a warning colour, which may also explain why one can find it on many logos and signs. Since the Middle Ages, this colour is also used to apply different types of discriminations.
