Colour decoding Why it works: Ørgreen

Danish Eyewear Brand: Ørgreen

Danish eyewear brand Ørgreen has drawn inspiration from two of the grand masters of modern architecture; Eero Saarinen and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Model Mies channels the architect’s ‘less is more’ ethos with a stripped-back approach to space and form, while model Eero embraces a neo-futurist vision of modernism, with nods to industrial design and architectural projects.

Best of all though is the strikingly graphic use of colour blocking, in shades of vivid blue, white, grey, black and gold, adding an extra dimension and energy to the clever shapes.
