Mathereal Color

SS/2019 Collection – Biomembranes IV

  • Color Palette
  • Materials Development

Terra Meritta is part of this collection. Membranes constitute the basis of this collection designed from natural structures and biopolymers, seeking colours, deconstructing fibres to create slim materials, new laminated fabrics that, through the formal abstraction of nature, evoke the organicity and flexibility of a second skin.

The fibres, oxidation and compaction processes allow us to work with textures and colours that, like nature itself, are ever changing. In this sense, time is key to obtaining a wide range of results in terms of the hues, thickness and quality of each piece of Biomembranes SS/2019.

Mathereal Color is a living project. We study colour, designing chromatic-material proposals based on nature and science, focussing on experimentation within innovation, creativity and sustainability processes.

The exploration of colour and specific materials during given periods of time has allowed us to delve into their composition, their properties and their behaviour, introducing a creative perspective to new and possible product applications.

One of Mathereal’s goals is to find ways to translate research into visually appealing manifestations. To tell the story of the experimental process and thus demonstrate the unleashed potential that these new materials may have to contribute to a more sustainable future.  

The two annual collections seek to understand colour as matter and matter as colour. From there we engage in exploring new materials and textures taking trends and insights into account, and identifying the opportunities that specialised knowledge thereof could generate for the respective fields of design, fashion and architecture.
