About the Exhibition


Daelim Museum presents ‘COLOR YOUR LIFE,’ an exhibition of works by leading contemporary designers and global brands on the theme of color, from 25 February to 21 August 2016. This exhibition introduces the processes by which color combines with creative designs of diverse materials to produce new objects that transform our everyday lives.


The exhibition begins with a journey of rediscovery, casting new light on the hidden colors around us through the color-themed photographs of six artists. This is followed by a series of examples of the textures created when color meets materials such as glass, fabric, leather and metal. The exhibition continues with an exploration of the creative processes by which contemporary furniture designers from around the world achieve new developments in color, before concluding with a display of interior designs combining Daelim Museum's own interpretations of 2016 color trends with masterpiece furniture by leading international designers. The progressive composition of the exhibition, moving from everyday colors to their combinations with other materials, their development through design processes and, finally, their expansion to fill spaces, offers viewers the chance to experience color from a multitude of angles.


Through this exhibition, Daelim Museum reveals new value in everyday colors, while presenting innovative possibilities for lifestyle change. Illuminating the creative potential of color, not simply in terms of its aesthetic beauty but in combination with various forms, materials and technologies, it explores the functional uses of color and attempts to achieve a perfect balance among structures, materials and designs. By demonstrating combinations of color and space, ‘COLOR YOUR LIFE’ awakens the senses to the hidden aesthetics in everyday life, offering a unique chance to experience the boundless possibilities of color from myriad perspectives.
