Tibor’s Color for April

It’s citron!

‘Collingo’ is Tibor’s unique color language created in 1956. Sixty years later they still use 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 their 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!

Fabrics featured: Princess Citron & Sheer Coral Gold
