WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE DYE LAB?
Dating back to the eighth century, dyeing technique consisted of taking fabrics that are bound, stitched, folded, twisted, compressed or clamped then dipping them into a colour bath. The results were not just distinctive in pattern but in depth of colour, too. The Shaw Contract design team took inspiration from this ancient textile dyeing method when conceptualising new colours to update our best-selling Dye Lab collection.

COLOUR AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The impact of colour in our inhabited spaces has a profound, subliminal effect on how we process and interact with the world, others and ourselves. As students of design, we understand that the colours we choose for a designed space are emblematic of a mood, a culture or an intended outcome. How does this shade of grey make our patients feel when they’re in a healing environment? Which shade of blue brings luxurious calm to a hospitality environment?
