Hella Jongerius Explores Color at London’s Design Museum

Hella Jongerius has designed chairs in three shades of white, but her exhibition at the Design Museum, London, is another story. The commissioned installations in “Breathing Colour by Hella Jongerius,” through September 24, combine unusual materials and shapes with the designer’s 15 years of research into metamerism, the phenomenon in which colors seem to match, because of how they reflect different light wavelengths, but don’t actually.
