Brief /
In architecture, design and fashion black and white generally stand for values such as abstraction, elegance and timelessness, but beyond this understanding there opens up an entire cosmos of motifs and cultural traditions. Thus, design in black and white interprets the cultural spectrum or refines it.

 

With its rich contrasts, this exhibition will explore the design ideas of the outermost extremes in spectrum of the colors. Again, Following an introduction to the cultural and social meaning the spotlight is turned on the idea, application and its effects of black and white in art, design and fashion of present and future.
