Parallel with the renovation of the Swedish National Museum, extensive work on creating completely new presentations of museum collections has taken place behind the scenes. Visitors notice that, among other things, the different art forms appear side by side alongside a chronological story.
And the museum is colour-coded!
Isabel Treste won the competition Prisad Färg with her project As if and had the opportunity to attend the NCS Color Academy course Colour Design Workshop 2018.
During five intense days in June a bunch of color enthusiasts gathered from different parts of the world in Mariefred, including architects, teachers, colorists and artists from, for example, the United States, China and Israel.
– The days were filled with lectures, workshops and conversations about colour, colour and light design. In the evenings we had lovely dinners together and continued the conversation, says Isabell.
At the end of the course, each participant made his own project.
-It was amazing fun to share everyone’s work and to hug ideas with each other and with teachers.
-The course gave me a lot of inspiration on how to use NCS / System as a tool in my design process. I also had a greater desire to work with color and greater understanding of the complexity and possibilities of the color world.
-Together with all the exciting meetings and conversations with participants and teachers, this became clear the summer’s highlight!

”Panton -miljöer, farver, systemer, mönstre”
Ida Engholm, Anders Michelsen
Strandberg Publishing, Köpenhamn, 2017
Verner Panton is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors. His style was very ”1960s” but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton’s most well-known furniture models are still in production (at Vitra, among others).
Panton was often radical and far ahead of time in the way het worked – it was about trying new. Both materials and production techniques. Everything according to the motto: ”A less successful experiment is preferable to a beautiful flatness.”

Sparkling colours, cherry blossoms and rainbows, bubbles and googly eyes: Why do some things seem to create such universal joy? Ingrid Fetell Lee reveals the surprisingly tangible roots of joy and shows how we all can find — and create — more of it in the world around us.
Every day, humans make dozens of judgements, from deciding whether our clothes match to determining whether a shady character in the street is a threat. Such decisions aren’t based on hard-and-fast rules, a new study reveals. Instead, our concept of “threat”—and even of the color “blue”—is all relative.
To make the find, researchers showed non–color-blind participants a series of 1000 dots ranging from very blue to very purple, and asked them to judge whether each dot was blue. For the first 200 trials, participants saw an equal number of dots from the blue and purple parts of the spectrum, but then the prevalence of blue dots gradually decreased to just a fraction of what it was before. By the end of the study, participants’ interpretation of the colors had changed: Dots that they had thought were purple in the first set of trials they now classified as blue, the authors report in Science. That is, their concept of the color blue had expanded to also include shades of purple.
