Long-term colour

When you are making a long-term colour investment you don't want to select a colour that will feel old within a year. These are the shades that will last, that will mature and that will stand the test of time. Whether you are selecting a colour for retail, technology or automotive, these colours translate well in products that last.

The warm tint of white has a slight grey tone. It reminds you of porcelain, a living white. It is more present then 100% white, and has more character. When the light casts shadows on this white it makes it almost architectural and sculptural.

The colour of the ocean on a stormy day. A blue shade that works well in matt finishes as well as glossy surfaces. Metaliic effects can be added to create more depth and add more reflection.

This red colour is deep & warm. It has a feeling of luxury and comfort. This colour works well as a solid in soft materials. In a fading from dark to light the colour becomes more modern but still keeps its mysterious atmosphere.

A brilliant green pigment. Calming and comfortable. A positive base colour that adds richness and a natural reference to materials. It works well in textured materials and velvet but also in glass and stone. This green can also be used matt in new plastics and jewel-like synthetics.

A modern deep brown, almost black but with a richer, warmer feeling. It shines like chocolate when polished and is cool and sturdy when used matt. When used on a wood the grain can shine through, adding an extra effect of richness.

A warm timeless neutral, the colour of natural wood and leather. It can be a great base colour, warmer, friendlier and more natural then white or light grey. It can be used in rich materials like leather but also in man-made recycled materials it is calm and timeless.

Texture brings life to black. The combinations of different textures and finishes creates different levels of black. Black is not solid, depending on how reflecting or absorbing the finish is. We have seen the all-black finishes for kitchens and cars but adding textures creates an interesting tension between surfaces. Use wood and porcelain, metal and leather or contrasting textures within one surface.
