292 million posts on instagram are hashtagged #fun. Only #friends and #love do better. Fun is a growing preoccupation for some time now.

 

The more society becomes demanding, the more playfulness, escapism and inspiration become important. Creativity and innovation are highly ranked skills nowadays. Often related to yellow. Yellow brings a tone of enjoyment and sun in architecture. The colour serves as an intermediate between architecture and furniture.

The Louvain M Museum is a bespoke example. It has playful yellow and blue in its lobby. Basic colours that refer to kids, play and fun. The colour does not disturb the simplicity of the architecture. All the reason why modern achitecture cries for strong playful colours. And I’m sure we will see them more often from now on.

#fun at Milan Design Week 18

It was not hard to find this colour palette during Milan Design Week 18. In fact it was quite in the face. The most disrupting evolution I identified, is the combination of yellow with #milennialpink. Sometimes with candy pink. MoOD+Indigo’s colour palette last year was very into human colours, with a lot of pink referring to the humanisation. What we see now is an evolution towards playfulness.

Atelier Biagetti added pink and red to yellow. Studio Joris De Groot designed a pleated seat (read more under the link) with performance textiles, showing the combination of yellow and pink. But the most #fun of all combinations comes from the ice cream museum in Miami.
