heroal Shows Its True Colours – with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier
Thanks to its exclusive partnership with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier, heroal now offers an even wider range of colours for windows, doors and curtain walls. The new colour spectrum will be presented for the first time at the FENSTERBAU FRONTALE trade fair from 21 to 24 March 2018 in Nuremberg The colour design of the system solutions for private construction and the building industry gives processors, developers and architects a degree of design freedom that is SIMPLY BETTER.
"Colour in architecture – a tool as powerful as the floor plan and section." Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is considered to be one of the most famous architects of the 20th century and continues to have a profound influence on modern architecture today. During his lifetime, he created numerous urban development plans and built some pioneering buildings.
It is for good reason that 17 of his buildings were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016, attesting to the globalisation of the modern movement. Drawing on his experiences working with structure, volume and colour, he developed two colour collections in 1931 and 1959: Polychromie Architecturale.
SIMPLY BETTER. DESIGNED.
The two "colour keyboards" consist of a total of 63 colour shades from nine colour groups, based on natural primary colours that evoke associations with our environment, such as space, sky, walls, sand and landscape. Each colour is eminently architectural and naturally harmonious. All colour shades can be combined with one another in impressive fashion and embody spatial effects: "Colour modifies space, classifies objects, acts physiologically upon us and reacts strongly upon our sensitivities" (Le Corbusier). Through this exclusive partnership, heroal now offers this colour spectrum for windows, doors and curtain walls. The Corbusier colour shades, as well as the RAL shades, are processed in the in-house heroal coating plant. Thanks to their highly weather-resistant (hwr) powder coating, they offer excellent colour stability, gloss retention and weather resistance over the long term and in the usual heroal level of quality.
