This installation is based on research into the influence of (artificial) light on colour. It emerges that not the shape of objects, but the degree of reflection and absorption of their material determines how we experience different colours.
Some colours appear to fluctuate in hue and tone through exposure, while others remain seemingly unchanging.
Studio RENS translated the research results into a museum setup, in which 30 iconic SE07 dining room chairs by designer Martin Visser take center stage.
Upholstering each chair with a different fabric, and lighting it differently each time, creates a spectacle of a phenomenon that is continuously happening around us, but is rarely noticed: the beauty of colour change through light.
