Public space is often designed using color to assign function or use.

Frank Bruggeman is a Dutch artist who applies nature as his main material. This also means that which is not nature, our self-designed environment, in contrast is equally important. The varieties in the latter are equalized by using a typical kind of blue color. In this manner the sculptures, installations and design objects by Bruggeman usually consist of plants or organic material in combination with blue sprayed objects, quiet often tools or industrial furniture. They results in a magnified tension between nature and man-made object.
