Every shade of colour is only a snapshot of the culture or nature of a country, influenced by the prevailing light. Capturing and preserving the perfect glimpse is a genuine art. Lars Contzen is a master of this art. Ever since 2013 he has been travelling across Europe to develop the perfect colours for the colourcourage colour system.
The world is a world of colours. Humanity today has discovered around 1 million coloured substances. Because they veritably fill our everyday lives, however, they have become so familiar to us that we perceive them as nothing out of the ordinary. There are nonetheless colours that stand out from this background, colours that conceal an extraordinary power and magic and establish a personal connection with us. They are so sensuous that they bind themselves to the soul of the observer. Artist and designer Lars Contzen travels around the world to uncover these special colours. And he finds them. He calls them “the perfect colours”.
Colours are a genuine marvel. They bring the world into order. They define nature. They guide people. Every colour has something to tell us – more quickly and directly than any other means of communication. Nothing has a stronger signalling power than colours. Colours are not materials in themselves, but merely refractions of light. How can the magic of the most perfect of all colours be captured? Preferably without chemistry. Or at least with as little as possible. When Lars Contzen finds a perfect colour in Nature, that colour should retain not only its effect but also its natural aspect. For this reason, colourcourage colours are manufactured solely from high-quality, environmentally-friendly binding agents and pigments.
