Stockholm based photographer & stylist Carl Kleiner is well known for his unique take on colour and geometric compositions. His most recent project was to create a series of lively abstract collages for furniture brand Herman Miller. Ka-pau! Aren’t they just awesome? If this doesn’t convince you of the importance of colour in product design, then I don’t know what will.

“According to Institute of Colour Research, between 62 and 90 percent of subconscious opinions about a product are mostly based on colour.”  – Herman Miller.

The company recently conducted a colour refresh of it’s three most popular solid colour lines: ‘Ground Cloth’, ‘Resonance’ and ‘Crepe’. The brief was to create a palette that felt “expansive, celestial and lighthearted.” Kleiner’s artful compositions feature textiles from these colour lines, meticulously arranged to form abstract geometric patterns and shapes. Nailed it.
