Now we have here two simple chests of drawers by two young Scandinavian designers. Both of them are based on the simple forms and playing with colors. Designers have used simple typology of these square interior object to explore color qualities. In each project with different visual result.

Oslo-based Mia Hamborg has created a tall form which shows colorful spectra. The result is something like the artificial interior rain-bow. In fact, her A4 shelf is the exact furniture for office use. The natural body hides colorful drawers for A4 format.

Next week At MINDCRAFT: Danish design and crafts in Milan 2011 designer Line Depping will show another minimalist chest of drawers, which shows us another color qualities. Her Tool Boxes piece is based on a simple metal frame and a number of solid wooden drawers. Each drawer is independent and each has a different shade of yellow color. The visual result features color gradient from natural wood to the rich yellow.

Both of projects visualize color qualities similar to the attitude of the abstract painters. But this time on something so ordinary as chest of drawers it.
