Hot Black Paste-Ups

The name ‘Hot Black’ stems from the idea of contrasting elements – black is never considered to be ‘hot’. The juxtaposition of complimentary materials in the same way contributes to something interesting and sometimes mysterious.

As designers, we are constantly inspired by our environments – maybe a walk through Melbourne’s laneways displaying a plethora of local street art, or seeing a space for the first time, whether it be new or old. Nothing excites us more than the possibility of ideas generated from a blank canvas.

Colour has always been and will forever remain a major influence of the work of all designers. It can excite and generate feeling and attitude in design, and it is our mission to retrace our steps as to where we have been affected and inspired by materiality and the urban landscape in which we live and work. Our personal connection to this environment has been our log book of ideas when working on our projects.

HOT BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK – stay tuned for some insight into our inspiration around Melbourne & abroad and don’t forget to use our hashtag #hotblackisthenewblack on Facebook & Instagram!
