1:st PRIZE: LET’S TALK COLOR!
Asta Westermark Florestedt
Beckmans Designhögskola, Form
To find the future, it is important to look back, which the jury saw as a strong value in this winning proposal.
The jury associates the proposal to Bauhaus geometric shapes and Itten’s color theory, which was created 100 years ago.
The abstract classic geometric shapes clearly illuminate how colour affects shape. Accounting is educational and appealingly simple.
This entry inspires in an innovative way and gives knowledge to the colour schemes of the future.
2:nd PRIZE: DO NOT GO GENTLE
INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
John Wattström, HDK
Kandidatexamen i design
A colour scheme in public space, which sucked the jury into an alternative world. Colour, shape, light and sound swept around us. The experience felt saturated and invited for reflection.
The title is taken from Dylan Thomas’s poem where the main theme revolves around light and darkness and is a call to protest against the end of life.
A competition entry that let color, light and shape express our uncertain future. This installation would be located at the UN Climate Summit.
3rd PRIZE: COLOUR FOR NATURE
Frida Navratil, Konstfack
Inredningsarkitektur & Möbeldesign
This contribution allows colour to create security for the forgotten place, the non-place. Form and colour are created with regard to nature and our planet. The competition entry will seek to challenge the future of colour with a focus on climate and biodiversity.
This is an installation that addresses the discussion about who we choose colour for and creates discussion about what colour can contribute. How can a designer choose colour that not only benefits man but also nature and other species?

The exhibition showcases interactive pieces, hybrid artefacts, graphic animations and tactile samples that have been developed through the encounter between mechanical and human, precision and imprecision, in the field of interactive architecture and digital design.
What appears to be a highly predictable process is in fact the result of fluid artistic investigation: architect and researcher Malgorzata Zboinska and her interdisciplinary team have extended the field of computational innovation by introducing imprecision, unpredictability, unpredictability, craft and co-creation with the machines into their research.
Opening Vernissage 5 November 2019 h. 18:00-21:00, tours with Artist November 6. Other event to be announced.
The exhibition is the culmination of an artistic research project ”Arkitektoniska konvertibler: på väg mot ett alternativt konstnärligt förhållningssätt till att utforma interaktiva arkitektoniska omgivningar” financed by the Swedish Research Council
Yellow is usually the color of happy, joyful emotions. But according to a new study, not all people associate the sunshiney shade with good vibes.
To find out what factors might play a role, researchers tested a new hypothesis: What if people’s physical surroundings affect their feelings about certain colors? For instance, if someone lived in cold and rainy Sweden, would they feel differently about the color yellow from someone who lived near the Sahara Desert?
The researchers looked at color-emotion data from an ongoing international survey of 6625 people in 55 countries. The survey asks participants to rate 12 colors on how closely they are associated with feelings including joy, pride, fear, and shame.
