This isn’t your everyday box of Crayolas – designed by Heli Hietala, “Colours” is an expressive collection of crayons modeled after lilliputian human beings. A handmade set consisting of 100 crayons, Hietala’s colorful concept alludes to a greater message, signaling the wealth of creativity that can be achieved through the intermingling of various characters. Depending on which figurines you chose, the reaction of one to the other can give way to a flurry of visual effects – whether softening, stimulating, balancing or dirtying. And just like the individuals they represent, Colours are for budding artists of all ages, colors, genders, shapes and sizes.
