Earthy Africa-inspired hues create harmony

“Often, trends that filter down to us from Europe or the USA are designed for that context, and not an African reality. Here we are bringing together colours that reflect the way we live here, and that are created with Africa in mind.”

For South Africa’s foremost coatings brand, 2022 symbolises more than just a new beginning, but a newfound appreciation for our wellbeing and an opportunity to create positive transformation. What better way to feel restored and reset than by looking at the healing properties of nature?

With the brand’s sensitivity to context and its thoughtfully selected colours, the palette encourages optimism, calm and balance. Set the tone for the new year by injecting fresh life into your space with this tranquil yet uplifting trio that speaks of home in so many ways!

Optimism, calm and balance – three in one

Just as in nature, colours come to life in harmony. Therefore, for 2022 Plascon has brought together three beautiful hues in a combination to capture the mood of the year. These colours pay homage to the natural African landscape outside of our homes while bringing the simple pleasures of nature inside. A true pioneer, Plascon is the first in its industry to give three colours – and not just one – the noteworthy Colour of the Year title, ensuring a more usable and design-friendly palette.

Working in harmony

The new Plascon Colour Combination for 2022 works in a 60:30:10 ratio. This aligns with best design practices, which suggests that 60% of a space should consist of a dominant colour, 30% a secondary colour and 10% an accent colour. Plascon therefore makes it easier for architects, interior designers, decor professionals and members of the public alike to adopt this approach and tastefully achieve a well-considered look. Suitable for both interior and exterior schemes, the three shades each explore various elements of nature.

Notably, the combination has been chosen to reflect a specifically African context, from the actual colours themselves to their names. “Often, trends that filter down to us from Europe or the United States of America (USA) are designed for that context, and not an African reality. Here we are bringing together colours that reflect the way we live here, and that are created with Africa in mind,” says Plascon’s head of marketing, Suvasin Moodley.

Plascon furthers its commitment to innovation with its Colour Combination for 2022.
