Fuorisalone 2015: Studio rENs
rENs presented their newest work at the Ventura Lambrate Area: “True Colours” and “Fade to Stay”. Designers Renee Mennen and Stefanie van Keijsteren are more than interested in colours; they analyze, experiment and dissect the phenomenon in many different ways. We were impressed by the “True Colours” project, in which they used various black markers on different kinds of cloth and drenched that into just plain water, in order to “break the black color down” into various shades. The result of this seemingly simple experiment is a marvelous fabric collection of 81 different designs. Studio rENs started their company in 2008 and have been collaborating with partners like Desso, Cor Unum, Zuiderzeemuseum, Textielmuseum and Lynfabrikken.
