Ecology of Colour

Inspired by living creatures who’s colours derive from pigments and structures, Ecology of colour focuses on the reproduction of biological nanostructures as a colouring material.


The Colourlab was the first project focused on new ways of approaching the colour field.

Starting from traditional colouring, to living organisms or waste, this project aimed to reflect about the possibilities of new pigment sources, and the implications involved.


Laboratorium develops projects in collaboration with artists and scientists applying the research from the color biolab project.
