In a nutshell:
Gold is timeless and always ‘in vogue’. This being said, it’s usage changes and we have recently seen gold being used as a statement colour, being used boldly and unapologetically. Gold speaks history and class, but used in a new way, gold doesn’t look out of place in modern design and architecture. From full buildings being clad in 24-carat gold foil (OMA’s Fondazione Prada) to Olive Oil bottles (Ecolium), the colour gold is as relevant today as it has ever been.
