It might be difficult to understand the composition of the Wrong Colour Furniture System by merely observing these photographs, for what you'll notice are pale wooden panels that appear to be streaked and spotted with vertical and horizontal bands of color. Are they surface treatment, or are they structural?

Minale-Maeda used aluminum bars to reinforce the frames of the cabinets and consoles within this collection, making sure that all components fit together in a stiff and steady way. For those who assemble the Wrong Colour Furniture System, it could be difficult to sort out which braces go where, so the studio enhanced them with blue, purple and yellow finishes that correspond to the longways and upright orientations that each must take.
