Colourcourage®, formulated by designer Lars Contzen, is a series of patented colour ‘families’.
The groups for Lars Contzen’s Colourcourage® concept were defined based on regularities of colour psychology combined with the current cultural understanding of colour.
‘The idea is to fill architecture and interior design with striking but aesthetic colour tones so that the look and feel of a room, space or building reminds one of graphic décor or constructivist painting that goes beyond normal dimensions,’ says Contzen. ‘A room is converted into an “ornament” without the surfaces in it becoming decorative.’
