Chromarama

Chromarama is a series of five graphic and colourful woven tapestries, designed for the various forms of colour vision deficiency.

While for most of us colour is an obvious part of our visual perception, 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women are colour blind.

To avoid loss of visual information, the design requirements were explored together with a colour-blind peer group. This artistic research was then translated into jacquard woven colour studies in the TextielMuseum’s renowned TextielLab in The Netherlands.

The tapestries are interconnected by materiality and graphic elements, despite the different functions of each individual design.


This project has been longlisted in the homeware design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
