Violet is an "unarchitectural" color, Le Corbusier famously said. That’s true, as we found out while developing this color. First recipes looked as beautiful as lilac in the light, but dense and cool, some of them even unpleasant and brownish in the shadows. This formulation achieves a fine balance: it looks dazzling in the light and graceful in the shadows. Use this paint color to offset dark, black or even white objects in spaces designed to appear neither cool and bluish, nor gray and achromatic, but tinged with fresh promise, like Spring lilac.

"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."
