Mazzo in Designhuis exhibition about colourA pink fluid in a coffee cup seems strange and suspicious, but the same pink drink in a cocktail glass looks festive. Colours invoke emotions, associations and responses. Colours affect the atmosphere of an interior or the attractiveness of a product. How much aware are designers of colour, and what part do psychology, zeitgeist and culture play?

From 27 March until 12 September 2010 Jeroen Vinken had his own room at the Designhuis: 'The curtain materials from the collection of Mazzo are woven with four primary colours. With those they can blend numerous colours, and therefore photorealistic pictures can be made. Vinken also plays with the intensity of colours, with the most extreme being a black-and-white version in gray-scale'.
