Kristiansand Kunsthall
IDENTITY
When Kristiansand Kunsthall transformed from Christiansand kunstforening into a contemporary art centre they asked us to create a new identity. The aim is to give the art centre a clear and welcoming voice. The identity design focuses on the location and the characteristic building drawn by the architects 4B in 1978. The square as a geometric form is the basis for the city of Kristiansand's urban plan, as well as for the tiles and internal grid of the building.

A tilted square is the key element in the identity and influences the formats and proportions. The colours green and blue are used as a contrast to the building's red and brown. The building's structuralist architecture inspired the use of the metal grid in the signage system.

Materials:
Laquered aluminium signs, metal grid and magnetic letters.
