“It’s important to decide on a colour palette that can stand through time, it must never feel as if it’s outdated and it must survive through new trends.

“Colour is a key issue in our work, and it is so because it is a key issue in our life – we love primary colours, for the purity and strength they have. Even before starting Carnovsky, printing techniques and light have always been two fields that we really care about and in which we have always wanted to work, so it all began doing some experiments with them.”
