Craig & Rose | Reassured by Tradition + a Progressive Outlook
Research shows that the human relationship with the natural world is intrinsically linked with colour. Our recall and ability to identify objects or scenes is directly linked to whether their colour agrees with our memory colour. Our minds are reassured by familiarity and Craig & Rose have an established tradition of being one of the oldest commercial producers of paint in world. Their products have a high pigmentation that gives a depth of colour loved by generations designers and has made them the paint company of choice for some of our greatest cultural institutions like the National Portrait Gallery.

Can these assumptions our minds make with the phenomenon of memory colour be reverse engineered? Can we give new meaning to objects with colour? Using The Colour 2018 as a starting point we invited three design practitioners to step away from the universal psychological associations of colour and to take a journey through their personal symbolism to create new progressive colour memories.

Each practitioner has designed and produced a new piece of artwork inspired from this process of considering colour that will be shown from 20th-23rd September 2018 at London Design Fair. Stand H13, First Floor, Old Truman Brewery. The pieces will then go on tour around the new Craig & Rose dedicated showrooms.
