Impressed by their "polychromatic portfolio" during a studio visit, design publication Sight Unseen invited them to do a series of color studies, "open-ended but somehow exploring their love of color." The result is a series of four delightful photographic still lifes, each one exploring a color family.

"Green is a story about balance. There are so many shades, and this one's so specific. It's finding the right composition."

"And brown is a story about the unpolished roughness of nature."
