The colour research and the creation of a new colour range for Vitra products, from the plastic standard chairs, textiles and leather to the finishes of wood and metal, resulted in the Colour Lab. Various materials and surfaces were used to experiment with the colours, including the coloured ‘pastilles’. Jongerius speaks of ‘colour cooking’, when pointing to the relationships she creates between one colour and another and between colours and material surfaces. The lab offers visitors a chance to better understand the many effects and nuances of colours.
