Colours for connection: 6 compassionate tones embracing nature and community

We believe great spaces inspire greatness, and none are complete without great colour. Colour has the power to transform, affecting mood, evoking feelings beyond words, and ultimately changing our lives. As renowned Colour Specialist and Professor, Jada Schumacher, explains, "Colour has immense power in our world. It can make your office feel dreary or inspiring. It can convey narratives and lead to life-changing discoveries. It can be pragmatic for survival, wayfinding, and creating a sense of place. Colour can be a game-changer.“

Our latest collection of wallcoverings, fabrics, and acoustics embodies this belief.  It encompasses 6 compassionate tones designed for reconnection – as an antidote to today's fast-paced, technology-driven world. After all, the desire, as Jada says, is to create "immersive spaces that conjure up a connection to somewhere else.“

This yearning for connection is reflected in our approach to design and the colours chosen for private, work, and public spaces. Top design trends are shifting away from cold or overwhelming colours towards those that evoke warmth, community, and, above all, a return to nature. Jada sums it up perfectly: “we’re bridging the gap between the digital world and a more grounded, human experience."
