Hella Jongerius

Design of the opposites

"I Don't Have a Favorite Colour"

Hella Jongerius is a designer from the Netherlands and was born in 1963. A typical feature of her design is the combination of apparent opposites. Tradition meets modernity, industrial meets craftsmanship and high tech meets low tech. She also always tries to point out the importance of surfaces and colours. She wrote a book about her experimental art called "I Don't Have a Favorite Colour".
