Tibor’s “Collingo” Color for March is Kingfisher

Our friends at Tibor are inspiring us with a ‘Collingo’ Calendar. They’re sending a color for each month. The month of March is KINGFISHER.

‘Collingo’ is Tibor’s unique colour language created in 1956. Sixty years later Tibor still uses this system in their design studio when dealing with color.

The color spectrum, derived from the earth to the sun, is divided into tonal color groups. It’s Tibor’s way of organizing colors.

Tibor Reich however, used it for every day life, in his house, on his folders, filing cabinets, telephones, fabric ranges and diaries – a true pioneer!
