When it comes to color, Hella Jongerius is one of our favorite contemporary designers. Her patterns for Maharam, Vitra, and IKEA strike a balance between subtle colors and bold notes...
Jongerius' unique approach to pattern appears in all her projects: for Vitra's Polder Sofa she used the cushions as palettes for contrasting colors and textures.
For the Repeat line of textiles, Jongerius created a series of distinct but related patterns that flow into one another.
For IKEA's PS Jonsberg Vase, Jongerius integrated traditional handcrafted ceramic techniques with industrial mass production.
