Colour Of The Year 2018
Humane: From the earth we are moulded, to the earth we shall return

Subtle earthy tones, naturally-lit spaces and diffused warm hues interpreted in materials that invite touch and allow imperfections. All these come together to cater to our inner yearning for meaningful connections beyond the virtual world of technology.

Busy Cool: Efficient multitasking is the new status-quo

Blurring the lines between work and leisure, ideal for the jetsetting multifaceted individuals of today, flamboyant orange-reds to relaxing blue-purples interpret the mood. Smart textiles and solid surfaces in naturally-lit spaces set the tone for intuitive problem-solving.

Alchemy of Memories: Reinterpreting Experiences

A nostalgic aura of positive introspection as one reflects on the journey past, with a touch of magic and a dash of reality, this trend tries to articulate the transience of memories. Evoking this feeling of reminisce are tones of muddy mauves, aqua, pale greys and vivid greens in vintage rustic textures, smoky hues and mood lighting.

Untamed: Communicating via Absurdity

Juggling the irrational, the influential and the masses, often times noteworthy, other times absurd, in an age of communication, trends take on lives of their own in the untamed arena of the world wide web. This mood is portrayed using Glitch Art, contemporary or futuristic decor and fluorescent psychedelic lighting.

The DFF is supported by Asian Paints and marks the Mumbai launch of Asian Paints’ annual forecast event called ColourNext. ColourNext over 15 years has become a trusted curator and library of future trends in the country with its collaborative research and experimentation along with some of India’s finest minds.

ColourNext’s 2018 edition “interprets our trending aspirational behaviour across the digital, public and personal spaces, recreating them as moods that will soon find themselves in our spaces. Observing the impact of consumer behaviour on colour and décor choices, [it] responds with Passion Flower as the Colour of the Year”. As 2017’s Intense Ocean colour palette gives way to the calm warmth of Amber and soft hues of Mustard in Passion Flower, the soothing colours help rediscover inner peace in safe inspiring spaces, designs and lifestyles. 

Colour Of The Year 2018
 
Humane: From the earth we are moulded, to the earth we shall return

Subtle earthy tones, naturally-lit spaces and diffused warm hues interpreted in materials that invite touch and allow imperfections. All these come together to cater to our inner yearning for meaningful connections beyond the virtual world of technology.

After its launch at India Design (ID18) Delhi in February 2018, ColourNext 2018 comes to Mumbai and invites you to explore individual spaces with the 4 trends - Humane, Busy Cool, Alchemy of Memories and Untamed. Via these trends CN18 attempts to interpret the aspirations of today’s dynamic individuals that inhabit the fast paced world of change, while armed with technology and the internet, yet yearn for the primal sense of touch and grapple with transient memories. 

Busy Cool: Efficient multitasking is the new status-quo

Blurring the lines between work and leisure, ideal for the jetsetting multifaceted individuals of today, flamboyant orange-reds to relaxing blue-purples interpret the mood. Smart textiles and solid surfaces in naturally-lit spaces set the tone for intuitive problem-solving.

 
Alchemy of Memories: Reinterpreting Experiences

A nostalgic aura of positive introspection as one reflects on the journey past, with a touch of magic and a dash of reality, this trend tries to articulate the transience of memories. Evoking this feeling of reminisce are tones of muddy mauves, aqua, pale greys and vivid greens in vintage rustic textures, smoky hues and mood lighting.

In doing so, it articulates via mood boards the kind of spaces such individuals would inhabit to rediscover, rewind, renew and recreate. From the plethora of colours, textures, motifs and lighting, it curates markers to ignite the feelings calm, creative, conscious and even chaotic, that help the on-the-go jetsetters of today to find their way. 

Untamed: Communicating via Absurdity

Juggling the irrational, the influential and the masses, often times noteworthy, other times absurd, in an age of communication, trends take on lives of their own in the untamed arena of the world wide web. This mood is portrayed using Glitch Art, contemporary or futuristic decor and fluorescent psychedelic lighting.

ColourNext 2018 is open from 29 March 2018 (evening) to 31 March 2018. For the schedule and news on the Design Fabric Festival head to their website.
