Color Collision is a collection of non-toxic ceramic tableware [1] designed by Kirstie Van Noort [2] and Rogier Arents [3]. To achieve the unique colors seen above, the ceramic objects were first dyed with red cabbage and then soaked in various liquids with different PH levels. What came to be were beautiful, surprising, and one-of-a-kind pieces steeped in color.

Van Noort and Arents met while studying at the Design Academy of Eindhoven [4], and Color Collision was their first joint venture. The project incorporates Van Noort’s love for experimenting with material and processes, and Arents’ communication and scientific research skills.

Color Collision reveals how non-toxic pigments [5] can be used in everyday designs, and how simple, natural reactions can give way to striking, unprecedented results.
