Color blocking is a hot trend right now whichever way you try to spin it– from clothing to interiors to nails and makeup. One of the most exciting and interesting forms of interior architecture and color blocking combined is this Japanese based Technical Chef School in Utsunomiya, Japan.
The classrooms are very minimal as one would imagine for this culture, but the hallways and communal areas are all filled with color and bright color blocked samples. Not to mention each area has its own distinguished color with a reasoning behind each one’s purpose. But the color use doesn’t have anything to do with trends and color blocking’s hot return– it is mainly about stimulating the 5 senses.
