KT 32.131 Light burnt umber

Soft and compliant, as pleasing as sandstone in natural light.

Referenz - Le Corbusier, Salubra wallpaper, 1931

Farbfunktion - differentiation

Wirksamkeit - good under all lighting conditions

Architects such as Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier had this handsome color on their palettes. The umbers fulfilled the avant-garde’s requirement of being beyond decoration; they were deemed honest, tasteful and true. Yet this medium umber is more than a reminder of the past – its moderation in terms of hue and lightness allows it to be used to deepen space without making it too dark. By muting hard contrasts, Light burnt umber also offers a simple and pragmatic solution to a common design problem.
