Inspired by Plasticine

by Pantone

Featured in editor David Shah’s Viewpoint Magazine, Franklin Till tells us that, in contrast to stylized and minimalist design, Plasticine is characterized by a playful and hands-on aesthetic that indulges in highly saturated colors and smooth textures. Seeming to emerge from the enthusiastic DIY culture, Plasticine- inspired, process-driven works of art created by spontaneous and expressive techniques embrace an element of surprise and produce some unique pieces and installations.

From Yago Hortal’s acrylic paintings with neon colors, Jordy van den Nieuwendijk’s vibrant figurative designs made out of fluorescent clay, and hot fuchsia pink orchid bowls created by Fredrikson Stallard to fantastical leg wear by Nick Pulles, we are seeing some bold new color and design directions coming to the forefront, highlighting a fresh new look in this digital age.
