THE BLUE CONNECTION – NEW BOOK

The Blue Connection
Exploring a Universal Color
Monika Haag / Mark Woodman (Ed.)

The Blue Connection begins with a blue ballpoint pen discovered in the window of a Santa Fe jeweller by the color designers and editors Monika Haag and Mark Woodman. The purchase of this unique piece, crafted from lapis lazuli, became the catalyst for a passionate discussion about the color blue.

Blue has many faces and recently evolved as a programmatic color increasingly identified with sustainability, health, peace and global responsibility. Blue seems omnipresent, always accessible and naturally attainable with endless associations and connections. Thus, the pen from Santa Fe began its journey to the authors, from Europe to China and on to the US – and came back with a wide variety of perspectives on blue.

This bilingual German/English edition explores blue as a universal color in 15 illustrated contributions from international design professionals The Blue Connection enriches the reader with its empathic potential for an open and universal discourse to conclude with a cutting edge look into recent research on color perception approaching the frontiers of quantum physics.

With contributions by M. Appadorai (Mas Subramanian), Rozbeh Asmani, Carla A. Bordini Bellandi, Dietmar Danner, Tom Fecht, Monika Haag, Rolf Heide, Xiaojing Huang Nikolaus Koliusis, Paula Leonard, Eric Michel, Taron S. Schauenburg, Jian Ming Song, Mark Woodman and John E. Zissovici

Choosing Colour – New book

Choosing Colour is a practical guide to colour-design for architects, designers, students and others who want to learn more about the possibilities of colour to create pleasant living environments. It provides both broad and deep knowledge of different ways
to choose colour in the design of both environments and our symbol-rich world in the form of signs, information boards, readability on computer screens and web pages etc.

The book presents useful methods for analyzing the meanings and associations of different colours, describes different ways to combine colours and how to create colour swatches. Furthermore, external factors are described, colour changes, which affect the experience of the selected colour. Choosing colour highlights different ways of working with colour, i.e. the colour that we experience. It concludes with practical examples of colour analyzes and inspiring colour scales.

In Swedish English version will be available soon

The colours in the old church paintings

Färgen i de gamla kyrkomålningarna

Over the years, art historians have presented magnificent books about the medieval church paintings in Sweden, in Mälardalen and Västergötland, in Småland and on Gotland, in Östergötland and elsewhere. The people, environments and symbols depicted have captured the attention of visitors for centuries. The medieval painters have left permanent marks on walls, ceilings and arches.

In Medieval Pigments, the reader may encounter these paintings, but under different signs. How have they been made? What does the colour consist of? What pigments were used? Anders G. Nord tells what the history of pigments reveals. Through many examples, the viewer will understand how the colour once appeared and what time has changed. What significance the church’s location had, when and how the church came into being, what pigments were then available. These are basic facts, but previously rarely or never addressed.

Nord describes how the paintings were built up, which dyes were used and where the pigments came from.

Anders G. Nord is an associate professor of chemistry and has for a large part of his professional life worked in cultural conservation, including at the Swedish Museum of Natural History and the National Heritage Board.

Dedicated to color
”Ett konkret och genomarbetat tävlingsbidrag, som med hjälp av färgkorrigering visar hur det går att förändra en byggnads status med färg.Hen har inspirerats av en kritiserad byggnad som fördömts att rivas pågrund av dess färgsättning. 
De nya färgkombinationerna framhäver byggnadens unika karaktär och bibehåller dess beständighet. Detta projekt visar hur viktig en färgsättning är för arkitekturen i en tid då vi behöver återvinna och tillvarata. Inte riva och bygga nytt.”

A concrete and elaborate competition entry, which with the help of colour correction shows how it is possible to change the status of a building with colour.
Hen has been inspired by a criticized building that has been condemned to be demolished due to its colour scheme.
The new colour combinations emphasize the building’s unique character and maintain its durability. This project shows how important a colour scheme is for architecture at a time when we need to recycle and take care of the existing . Not demolish and build new.
