In our Tangerine Dream post, we highlighted products using bright orange tones. One designer – and his prolific use of the colour in question – was in no doubt of making our list. Tom Dixon‘s ‘Fluoro’ orange has been a prominent feature within both his product range and his brand identity for many years.

The striking presence created by this colour was a major inspiration behind the gift box packaging of our upcoming wire fruit bowl. Although we have to mention the fruit of the same name:
We’ve always loved Lucy Turner’s work and it’s great to see her getting such critical acclaim.
Lucy specialises in laser cutting Formica to upcycle retro furniture. She has now teamed up with some big names such as John Lewis and Lane Crawford.
It’s really nice to see her working with some amazing hotels and see her work in beautiful interiors all around the globe.
Well done Lucy!

We’ve always loved and been inspired by his work and use of colour so we’re really excited to be showing our products alongside his amazing paintings. We have picked up colours from his work and chosen our pieces accordingly.
Port Eliot festival, now in its ninth year is a haven for creatives. It has plenty to offer the design conscious including workshops by Anthropologie and Print Club London.
The recent success of the film Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy has enabled the Brighton based illustrator Matt Taylor to produce a beautiful set of paperback covers for Penguins most recent incarnation of the famous spy series by John Le Carre. His use of colour ranges from subtle and considered, to bold and brave. A quick glance at his portfolio leaves no doubt to his colour-centric credentials.
