Asta Westermark Florestedt won Prisad Färg 2020

1:st PRIZE: LET’S TALK COLOR!


Asta Westermark Florestedt
Beckmans Designhögskola, Form

Jury opinion: 
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 

Jury’ opinion:
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

Jury’ opinion:
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?

Unpredictable Flesh

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

What emotions do colours represent?

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.

Hella Jongerius – Breathing Colour

This autom Nationalmuseum presents Hella Jongerius’s exhibition Breathing Colour which is a visual installation that features the results of her longstanding research into colour, shape, light and materials.

The studies become more in-depth with the help of works that she has selected from the museum’s collections. The visitor’s movement throughout the exhibition follows the change in daylight, from dawn till night time, through different colours and materials. Hella Jongerius was a part of the Dutch design group Droog in the 1990’s and she has designed textiles, porcelain and furniture for a number of international companies and she is also represented in the collections at the Nationalmuseum.
