Who knew vegetables could be so exciting!

Dutch designers Daniera ter Haar & Christoph Brach’s project ‘Raw Color’ is an exploration of the pigments which arise from vegetables and their state before there are used on textiles or paper. They researched vegetables and their powerful colour, dismantled and purified them to their visual essence ‘Raw Colour’.

“The harvested color is captured by a new process preserving their intensity on color cards. Categorized by shades and families a new map is created which shows their beautiful diversity. This projects reinterprets the vegetable and puts it into new context.”

I came across an image of the colour cards on Pinterest which linked me to the collection of interesting experiments being carried out by the design team. I felt inspired by the power of nature to create such vibrant and varied shades of colour. I’ll never look at a vegetable in the same way again!
