Wind and its energy can be used not only for generating electricity but also for creating design objects. Last Thursday V2 CONCEPT STORE in Vilnius made a collaboration between N WIND magazine, Anchovy fashion brand and the winds of the North. The idea behind FROM WIND project is to convert winds into colours.

An app at www.fromwind.com translates real time data of wind direction and speed from meteorological stations in cities into colours. The website allows you to select multiple cities and see unexpected colour combinations of moving energy.

N WIND is about creative Northern energy, so with this collaboration they tried to emphasise the fellow feeling between the countries in the North region. The first creations FROM WIND – creative energy between the Northern capitals, reflected on large format silk scarves and prints. Vilnius–Reykjavik. Oslo–Copenhagen–Vilnius–Helsinki. Vilnius–Riga–Tallinn.
