Delpozo and ‘The Interaction of color’ by Josef Albers


Josep Font presented his Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Delpozo yesterday in New York. There’s something in the work of geniuses that make them differentiate from the rest within a distance of kilometers. Font just belongs to other level.

His last show is inspired by The interaction of color, the theory developed by Josef Albers about the properties of color and its relations. Albers published this work in 1963 with the aim of helping students, teachers and artists, and since then it has become an essential base for designers, architects and anyone that plays with color. Through several studies of color, the German artist demonstrated principles about relativity, intensity, temperature, movement, and the interesting illusions of transparency and background. Albers even connected musical intervals with color, allowing the representation of melodies through successions of color. The editorial that launched the manual has created an app for the iPad in which you can try some of the proposals by the man who loved squares.

Here you can see some of the looks from the runway and a selection of Albers’ works with color.
