Margrethe Odgaard

There are more than two years of study and thorough work behind Margrethe Odgaard’s ‘Shades of Light’. The original 900 colour swatches have been reduced to a book consisting of 220 pages and 276 finished colours.

In ‘Shades of Light’ which has the subtitle ‘An incomplete range of colours from a culture of slow and hesitant light’ – it is all about the Nordic colour spectrum and in the book you get Margrethe Odgaard’s reflections and proposals on a specific Nordic colour palette.

Margrethe says:

‘At a market in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco I was handed my vegetables and nuts in plastic bags with gorgeous stripes in turquoise and orange-brown. I persuaded the vendor to sell me a whole roll of bags, but when I unpacked them back home, they had lost their lustre. A colour only truly works well when it is compatible with the local light conditions, and the combination of turquoise and orange-brown plastic suddenly seemed akin and over the top in my Copenhagen life.’
