Finish Insight Dutch Design Week 2023
#DDW is a great place to discover designers and brands developing or working with fascinating finish effects. In previous years there has been a strong focus on matt finishes worldwide. After the pandemic, there is a renewed interest in tactile experiences and visual excitement. This year, super glossy and gritty surfaces stood out.
5 excellent designers and their dreamy CMF Colour Material Finish projects (clockwise from large image):
Rinke Joosten – Beautifully reflective textured detail of Momentum, a collection of blown glass objects.
Agnieszka Mazur – One of the wonderful finishes from the Memory of the Sea exhibition, a fantastic interplay of raw shells and shiny glue.
Cristina Nan – Poetic computer-generated clay surfaces that have a lower CO2 impact than concrete, steel or glass.
Studio Guilty – I immediately fell in love with these sophisticated gravel sculptures.
