How can coloured surfaces interact subtly in daily life? Variations Chromatiques (or Chromatic Variations) question our relationship to colour in private interiors. Inspired by Pointillist’ paintings, many juxtaposed coloured brush strokes create vibrating surfaces. With two or three colours, “living” surfaces created — between the solid colour and the actual pattern. As the colours blend together by optical illusion, these surfaces are never the same. They are changed by the variations of light and the user’s point of view.
