TALKING COLOUR – WITH MATT DICOSTA
WHAT BROUGHT ABOUT THE NOOD COLOUR RANGE?
We wanted to challenge the current perception of concrete. I do a fair bit of interior work and its a question/thought that has popped up a lot. How do you soften concrete down to make it suit all styles? Can concrete be used in all formats of design, commercial and residential? Can it be feminine and masculine? I feel our pastel colour range, combined with some curvy design, has given concrete a new feel. It is more approachable, more diverse in its usage.
WHICH PIECES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE FULL COLOUR RANGE?
Technically all of the pieces. We have made some choices on each product page as to where we feel the consumer may be at with coloured concrete, for example the dining tables have ivory, mid tone grey and charcoal as the only options but we are happy to make any colour from our range. I have a Copan Blue Layla table in my backyard and it looks great.
WHY THE COLOURED CAFE TABLES?
We created 3 cafe table top designs to allow the shop owner a bit more versatility than they are probably used too. But also, we’ve created 7 amazing colours to pick and choose from. So now they have many options…they could mix and match greys with blush pinks…or switch between ivory and mint. The options are endless and the pricing is all the same. We want the shopping experience to be simple, logical and most of all enjoyable. After all, the Nood team are frequent shoppers themselves.
