KT 32.090 Deep red
A truly rich red, as present in space as brass fanfare music.
Referenz - Le Corbusier, Salubra wallpaper, 1931
Farbfunktion - dynamic
Wirksamkeit - good under all lighting conditions
An exquisitely vibrant, archetypical red: neither yellow nor blue, and thus typical for the perception of red. Deep red appears to advance in space and fill it with a strong presence. This may be why Wassily Kandinsky referred to it as a “fanfare color.” Opposites are known to attract; in this case, KT 04.003 Prussian blue is Deep red’s opposite. The blue with the consonant force of deep cello music withdraws into the background, allowing brassy Deep red to attract all of the attention.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
