Eames Color Wheel, 2015

This is a Eames color wheel. It was designed by Hella Jongerius and made for Vitra AG. It is dated 2015. Its medium is mixed media.

When Dutch designer Hella Jongerius joined Vitra as Art Director for Colors and Materials in 2007, she studied the archives to develop a cohesive palette for the brand, but she also created a color and materials wheel specific to each designer. The Eames wheel includes clear primaries as well as a nuanced selection of blacks and grays.
