Did Matisse create an early version of a Swatch Book? Currently at the Tate Museum in London, the Matisse Exhibit features the French artist’s  final era of his career in which he began “carving into colour” and creating his series of spectacular “cut-outs.” Matisse would keep off-cuts of colour “swatches” that he later used for colour reference (examples of his “swatches” seen inside the glass cabinet.)

We’re excited to share this new venture with you. We hope you enjoy it! 

We love seeing the different ways people use our lighting filters. One recent example of this was an installation by Connor Robertson from Installate Design. 

Connor’ background in events and structural/civil engineering enabled him to create this geodesic skeleton structure made of 40 individual hollow perspex frames. Each panel is covered in a different coloured gel from LEE Filters. The panels in the structure can easily be replaced with any lightweight material to create infinite bespoke ideas from a dj booth to pop-up promo tent.

Connor chose LEE because of the vast range of colours available. He loved the way the quality of the light reinforced the visual importance of the design and that the vibrant colours he chose gave an impression of clean precision and beauty.
