Forbo Flooring Systems as Manufacturers

As in earlier projects, we consulted Le Corbusier’s colour palette. One of his colours corresponded closely to Berlin Red so it seemed ideal for the Bauhaus Library. The only other bright colour we used was a sparingly used Neon Green, for example in the wall boards and the panels alongside the reading tables. Those were the only colours we needed. All the rest is in tones of grey and white, givinga fresh colour with an elegant, muted effect. As in earlier projects, we consulted Le Corbusier’s colour palette.
