Color Your World with Le Corbusier

corbusier colors.jpgVisionary architect Le Corbusier preferred drawing to talking. “Drawing is faster,” he said. “And leaves less room for lies.” Meanwhile, lies for rooms could be minimized by adhering to his prescribed color palettes, selected to complement or contrast with purist white or natural materials. You can bring Le Corbu home with you thanks to kt.COLOR. The Swiss specialty paint manufacturer that brought you Yves Klein blue in a can also produces handmade paints in 63 colors licensed from Fondation le Corbusier. There are two palettes to choose from: LC 32 is a collection of 43 pastels from the monochrome Salubra wallpaper collection of 1930 and LC 43 is a powerful pack of 20 colors introduced in the 1950s to play off materials including lime plaster, raw concrete, and wood. If the prospect of Veronese Green and Bright Orange is too overwhelming, fear not. Kt.color also offers a collection of 17 “Variations on White.”
