Rood (Red)

1st November 2012

I first saw this project in Milan earlier this year and was pleasantly surprised to see its evolution during Dutch Design week.

Exploring the colour Red - rENs who are the design studio behind it have pushed their obsession with Red beyond clothing into carpets, food, furniture and ceramics.

Exploring the alchemy and science behind colour they dye garments and objects in red dyes. The varying materials take up the red colour differently resulting in a myriad of shades. They also play with pigment strength, water and other additives that make the colour range so broad and vary in intensity resulting in entirely unique pieces.

In addition each piece of clothing comes with a story that can be read at www.roodbyrens.nl.
