The new tones
Archipelago stone is a reinterpretation of the grey hues of nature’s many different types of stones and pebbles. It is somewhat warmer than the original grey Caravaggio and less cool in its appearance. With Archipelago stone, we expand the palette with yet another classic colour only this time expressed in a warmer tone whilst remaining timeless.
Refined, delicate and smooth: these three words only get so close to describing this soft tone of grey. The reference to silk lies in the softness of the touch and Warm silk enhances the silhouette of the famous Caravaggio shape in an understated and elegant manner. The Caravaggio series now offers a warmer grey and with Warm silk total harmony fulfils the Caravaggio collection.
The tone Dark sienna is an almost powder-looking nuance of dark, earthy red. Intensified by the matt gloss the earthy tone comes across both parched and deep in its own mesmerising way. Bordering on the colour of cocoa powder Dark sienna is intense and can warm any classic Nordic styling.
Whilst on the verge of being black, this bluish hue gets its name from the extraction of an ultramarine pigment characteristic of the exceptional rock, lapis. During the Renaissance, ultramarine was the finest and most expensive blue pigment used by painters. The tone in this design is extremely matt and has a crisp, almost dry appearance. The hue changes beautifully on the lampshade from daylight’s brightness to evening’s nocturnal darks.
