Chalk: a new collection from Dinosaur Designs

The first collection of the new year, Chalk’ s stripped-back, tranquil palette signifies an opportunity for renewal and cleansing.

Chalk pares back Dinosaur Designs’ familiar use of colour to focus on the organic forms that are intrinsic to the brand’ s D N A . Handmade in the Australian design studio, the homewares and jewellery’s fluid silhouettes are cast in tones of Chalk Swirl, Sandy Pearl and White Marble, complemented by two new transparent shades, Mist and Frost .

For artist and designer Louise Olsen, the idea of exploring tone as a way to hero form sits at the heart of the collection. She uses one of her favourite expressions to summarise the essence of Chalk, “Colour rushes to our head, but tone touches the soul”. Both the jewellery and homewares of the Chalk collection explore this narrative around form. Reimagined in the season’s tonal palette, vase and serve-ware shapes present peaceful, Zen-like silhouettes. With several new designs, the jewellery celebrates form through layered and inter locking beads accompanied by organic, stacked bangles. Subtle silver accents throughout the jewellery add dimension to the collection’s pared-back palette.
