OvN Colour Flow 2020 - Colour & Material Guide
Colour Flow is the annual colour and material guide of Oltmans van Niekerk. Colour Flow relates directly to the long-term trends that are identified in the annual lifestyle book Vision 2020. It shows how to translate these trends into new colours and materials. These are not limited by season or fashion but attempt to analyse colours and materials for a wider and longer term perspective. Trends with a long term influence that could feature for five years or more.
Colour Flow 2020 is OvN’s fifth annual colour statement. It showcases the colours, materials and finishes that will be influential in 2020 and beyond. Colour Flow shows how to translate trends into new colours and materials. These are not limited by season or fashion but attempt to analyse colours and materials for a wider and longer term perspective.
The colours are placed in a circle to give a clear idea of the colour directions for 2020 and to show how the colour narratives can merge with each other. If you are limited in creating new colours, the circle can bring clarity regarding which new shades to include. If you are working with collections the colour circle displays the transition of the colours through the seasons.
Colour Flow contains visual and tactile information that is waiting to be adapted to your specific product range. The book offers clear colour and material direction for anyone that is working with future product development. Colour Flow is released once a year and contains inspiring visual information, Pantone TCX colour swatches and inspiring new material swatches.
The price includes both printed and digital versions of the trend forecast. The e-book can be read on tablets, computers and smartphones.
