Vibrant, uncompromising color

By Ingrid Fetell Lee


I could get lost in the vibrant color of Josef Albers’s Homage to the Square series of paintings. Right now I’m designing a set of stools each with three different-colored legs, and thinking about using these squares as palettes for inspiration.

If you love them too much to content yourself with a print, Hermés created a series of scarves based on these evocative squares. (I can’t link directly, but look for the photo of Albers over his squares.) The names of the scarves below are Formal Garden, Allegro, and of course, Joy.
