Artist Günther Förg was looking for a color between KT 43.17 Orange and KT 43.20 Bright yellow. It was to be as good-natured as golden marigold petals and to keep its brilliance in strong color combinations, even under artificial lighting. Straightforward mixtures of red and yellow do not fulfill these requirements; they are disharmonic in many combinations and falter under artificial lighting. Persian orange, however, keeps its luminosity under all these conditions by virtue of generous additions of raw green umber and ochre.

"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."
