Color Theory

5.10.24 - 6.21.24

This May, Salon Design will debut new collections from leading Brooklyn-based lighting designer Rosie Li and Dutch textile designer Sina Dyks in an exhibition that celebrates the role of color in bringing objects and space to life with a distinct mood and feel. Curated as a series of vignettes and color stories, the exhibition, Color Theory, will center on the works of these two designers – augmented by new work from Kajsa Willner, a site-specific installation by Christina Watka, solar-designer Marjan van Aubel’s Sunne lights, and paintings from Dominick Leuci and Darryl Westly – focusing on their use of color as they explore new avenues in their practice.

“Color Theory came out of a number of organic, simultaneous conversations with designers who were all pushing the boundaries of their work with explorations of color and materiality that were engaging with larger ideas of how we experience the world and relate to it,” noted Salon Design founder Amanda Pratt. “It has been really exciting to bring these works and designers in conversation with one another, both to create a serene, compelling experience of color and texture in the gallery, and to spur on conversations on materiality, sustainability, and design.”
