Our Colour in Context for June is Autobahn. In Mix Trends issue 24, Spring Summer 2013, Block, this mid blue, the colour of a summer day, is a perennial big seller with applications across the board. It is particularly useful for upholstery but it also turns up on surface treatments, glass and painted furniture. This powdery summer blue is particularly popular in the contract sector where it works well with grey but also adds a pop of colour to liven up otherwise dull interiors. Pictured is Drum, a sophisticated take on the classic tub chair by Simon Pengelly for Chorus Furniture, on show at Clerkenwell Design Week. The chair also demonstrates how well this colour works with pale wood.
