“Colour is the place where our brain and the universe meet.” Paul Klee

It is 50 years since man first landed on the moon but for millions of years we have been fascinated by the planets and the universe. Colour is fundamental to our understanding of the universe from the red planet Mars to the pale gold of Saturn. From our own blue planet we talk about black holes, blue moons and blood moons. From the ancient Chinese five colour system to the Atomic design movement of the 1950s the universe has inspired design, colour and textiles for centuries.
