CRUSHING HARD / Black & White

We’re very into contrast at the moment, specifically the intensity and aggression between black and white in an interior. The two opposites of the colour spectrum – Dark vs light, heavy vs airy, aggressive vs calm… You can’t have one without the other, just like you can’t know shadow without the light. These two elements together create a visual tension, which is why we find it so interesting. Here are our favourite examples of this fine balance between black and white.
