Behind the scenes: developing new colours
The all-new colour collection has been developed in close collaboration with renowned designers Maison Marie, AL Architects, EQ Interior and TREU Interior Specials. The article below describes the development process for exciting, on-trend colours for our floors.
Armed with a big dose of inspiration, various mood boards and colour samples the design agencies got to work in our showroom to come up with new, expressive colours. Learning more about the production process and colour pigments helped decide on which colours would work best. After collecting all ideas we narrowed the number of colours down to 16 of which 12 blend colours and 4 solid colours.
The next step was connecting these new colours in three appropriate themes: Earth Tones, Industrial Cool and Neutrals.
We couldn’t let go of our most popular colours therefore we selected 16 Originals from our current colour collection to complete the palette.
Maison Marie is an interior design studio. They create spaces with personality, spaces that tell their own story. Tailor-made interior concepts for private residences as well as commercial spaces. The typical Maison Marie style is timeless with a touch of now. An exceptional mix of styles, showing off their love for exquisite fabrics and warm colours. For EPI they developed the colours Rose, Sage, Honey and Terra, shades that originate from nature.
AL architects BNA is an agency for architecture and interior architecture. They mainly serve the residential market and their services include newbuild, renovation and interiors, from concept to realisation. One of their signature projects is the transformation of a monumental farmhouse into a modern living space where the old elements have been preserved. AL architects named the colour they chose ‘River‘ as it was inspired by a nature reserve in Venezuela.
