Materials used are smooth and functional, including metal, plastics, smoothly sanded and varnished timber, glossy ceramics, glass, smooth leather, even cotton, concrete, cast materials and polished stainless steel. To avoid the whole becoming too severe and chilly, the cool, smooth artificial surfaces and finishes are complemented and contrasted with warmer natural materials like wooden blockboard and cork.
The regular patterns used, graphic in nature, can be expressed by anything from punched or embossed to printed patterns. Textiles and wall paper are given geometric patterns, at times skirting the border zones of psychedelia.
The colour palette is orderly and full of contrast. Black and white predominate, mingling with primary colours such as yellow, cobalt blue, red and green. To soften the look and keep things welcoming, these colours are complemented by grey and natural browns, often by the use of timber. The main colours are frequently highlighted with one or two colour accents.
