About the book:
The book “I Don’t Have A Favourite Colour” tells the story of Jongerius’s decade of experiments for Vitra in her own words. Drawing on the writing of Michel-Eugène Chevreul, Johannes Itten and other historic colour theorists, her weaving experiments on a tiny wooden loom in her Berlin studio and projects by twentieth century designers like Jean Prouvé and Verner Panton that she found in the Vitra Design Museum archive, Jongerius describes how her understanding of colour and materials has evolved during the process of compiling the library and developing new hues, fabrics and finishes for Vitra.
