    London by Industrial Facility

    Industrial Facility rarely see colour in isolation—it is part of something, contextual. For things in the public or urban landscape, like a road barrier, pavement or a kerb, the purpose of the 'thing' can be so strong that its colour is almost invisible. Experienced in isolation, these colours can be repurposed, finding their intrinsic value. What is thought as utilitarian or ugly can take on a beauty all its own. This sums up Industrial Facility’s 10-colour palette London: a ‘resultant’ beauty (beauty that is not created but found) reveals something that was once unseen.

    Portrait of design-duo Industrial Facility for Scandinavian colour and design house, Blēo.

    London-based studio Industrial Facility was co-founded by designers Sam Hecht and Kim Colin in 2002. Their progressive approach reflects both a thoughtful consideration of form and a singular understanding of contemporary life, creating beauty out of utility in the products, furniture and exhibitions they design. Industrial Facility aspire to work for industry in a way that improves the things we live with, not setting out to produce something different but rather something better. Things that will last, be effective and give satisfaction beyond what is called for by the product and the client. Their work are held in permanent collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Design Museum, London.
