head in the clouds


The outdoors came in at Designday this year with a collaboration between four/two/one and Resene aptly known as ‘Head in the Clouds’, which took Designday visitors on a journey through a veil composed of hundreds of sky coloured triangulated modules floating in a rainstorm of colourful pencils.

Resene's colour palette for Designday 2015 reflected the time of day

From dawn to daylight and through to dusk, the colour palette reflected the time of day. Dawn was represented by Resene Memphis Belle (fruity red), Resene Glorious (clear pink orange), Resene Sakura, (peach blossom pink), Resene Gin Fizz (warm cream) and Resene Abbey Road (orchid rose). Daylight moved to clearer, bluer hues of Resene Bellbottom Blue (chalky mid blue), Resene Blue Moon (dusty blue), Resene Frozen (cool grey blue), Resene Half Carefree (watery grey green) and Resene Solitude (tint of blue). Dusk embraced the glowing and husky hues of Resene Shirley Temple (spirited orange), Resene Touche (persimmon orange), Resene Oscar (ochre cream), Resene Chapta And Verse (mushroom risotto) and Resene True Blue (violet blue).

Resene colours and Designday 2015

Using the Resene The Range Fashion Colours to transform what was essentially just basic materials of cardboard and pencils, reveals the potency of colour and its potential to revolutionise our everyday spaces.

Resene SpaceCote Flat was screenprinted by the Resene Drawdowns team onto sheets of card before being carefully formed by the four/two/one team. Pencils were sprayed then hung, and as Designday progressed the pencils dissipated into visitor hands so that by dusk most of the rain had 'fallen'.
