Chromaticity installation by Monocoque

March 21st, 2016 by retail design blog

‘Chromaticity’ started out as casual lunchtime banter in Monocoque‘s office on how colors are terribly misrepresented from screen to print. having to deal with them on a daily basis, this unapologetically led to a full-blown discussion of why colors are well, the way they are.

‘Chromaticity’ is an installation where hues are arranged naturally in a linear array across a room. Saturation or color richness are tiled with increasing value from bottom up. This recreates a recognisable hue palette creatives use in their daily color work. To introduce a third dimension, hand-folded tetrahedrals were incorporated to form the base element for this tessellation.

Light sources interacting with the differing facets each receive variations of light intensity. This creates color’s third dimension, commonly known as ‘value’, indicating the quantity of light reflected. At first glance, it may appear that each triangle consists of three distinct colors, but in truth it is nothing more than a simple play of lights and shadows.
