Meet the network Danish Color Board

13. June 2019 Meet the network Danish Color Board

How does the idea for a particular colour scale arise? Does it come from a picture, a political situation, a natural phenomenon or? And how do you work from the starting point to a colour scale that lasts in 2 years? Can you at all predict which colours will be in fashion for the next 2 years? Is it possible that just a few people influence which colour attitudes become dominant in the future at a global level? These are some of the topics and processes that the Danish Color Board will elaborate on, Thursday, June 13 at 4PM.

Danish Color Board consists of a group of professionals working with colours. The group is interdisciplinary ranging from textile design and fashion over shoe and wallpaper design to interior- as well as industrial design. Chairman of Danish Color Board Marie-Louise Rosholm says: “We are united in the passion for colours! Twice a year we meet to create a Danish proposal for colours in the coming two years. The proposal is presented to Intercolor, which is an equivalent group, but at international level. At an international workshop we then create an international proposal for colours. On June 13, at A. Petersen, you can experience the international ‘encounters’ – time capsules from the individual Intercolor member countries presented as videos. There will be plenty of opportunity to see and study previous year’s colour charts from Danish Color Board and from Intercolor, as well as discuss with members of the Danish Color Board group. Perhaps you even want to join the Danish Color Board? “.
