The ColoRing collection by Jo Nagasaka is an exploding mess of clashing colors and ideas that manages to meld perfectly together. The latest collection from the Japanese designer showcases his skill for applying bright neon resin into wood pieces, leaving the natural grains exposed.
Jo Nagasaka, who works for the Schemata Architecture firm, has made a name for himself through this process. The ColoRing collection is currently on display at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Milan Design Week 2013.
The designer achieves this unique look by applying paint to the wooden surfaces and then polishing this color with a brush made from sew grass. This rough bristled brush scrapes off the natural tissues on the surface and reveals the raw wooden grains underneath.
