KT 43.17 Orange

Like a tongue of fire – a magical feast for the eyes.

Referenz - Le Corbusier, Salubra wallpaper, 1959

Farbfunktion - dynamic

Wirksamkeit - best under strong lighting

This shade is roughly equivalent to the color of red lead, which was once immensely popular but is no longer used today. The gray color of raw concrete and the massive dimensions of his beton brut architecture in the 1950s inspired Le Corbusier to include such a shade in the second Salubra wallpaper collection. In small, white spaces, this extreme orange would be too dominant and spatially expansive, but against the gray backdrop of massive concrete structures, it is pleasing and harmonious.

"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."
