KT 32.022 Medium ultramarine blue
Ultramarine blue with natural gray, a color that widens tight spaces.
Referenz - Le Corbusier, Salubra wallpaper, 1931
Farbfunktion - materialization
Wirksamkeit - best in the shadows
This hue’s reference is the second ultramarine blue tint in the collection of wallpapers that Le Corbusier specified in the 1930s. It is midway between the bold dynamic blue shades and the light atmospheric ones. A convincing effect can be achieved with this color if it is used to paint the ceilings of recessed balconies or covered porches. It will blend in with the sky and allow the enclosure to disappear. It can be used to widen other tight spaces, or to make dark ones seem lighter and brighter.

"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."
