Tonetone is a commission for True Magazine, a publication by @duotone.kiteboarding where several artists and designers were invited to interpret the word “duotone”.
Part of our jobs as industrial designers at RELVAOKELLERMANN is to find the materials that better serve a function or better communicate an idea.
Thinking about “duotone” a material jumped into our minds duo to its visual characteristics: Dichroic Glass.
Dichroic Glass is a type of glass that displays two different colours depending on the way light reflects on it.
We wanted to transport the visual qualities of this material into a product and created a signage that changes the way we perceive objects. Once the signage is placed over something, everything becomes DUOTONE.
