When an element like copper is found in nature it’s green. Oxidized metal surfaces create colours that provide information about a material. The pallete is a reaction with the base material. This project shows the results of a research on metals and their true colours.
Designer Lex Pott (1985) employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence. He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
