32001 blanc Light Base

from 1.50

Blanc 32001 - the white of Le Corbusier's first color collection from 1931 is like a very balanced cream with yellowish nuances (The yellowy hue numbered 32001) and a stable aesthetic. Blanc 32001 is very rich, widely usable, static and stable in any light. The shade is an ideal background for color design. The other colors can be accentuated against this reflecting shade. Blanc 32001 forms a basic color in three Le Corbusier atmospheres: in «Velvet I», «Velvet II» and in «Checkered III». The color white was a symbol of modern architecture. And it is still always - often thoughtlessly - used on large areas as "neutral". White is not neutral, however, but instead always a particular white. White areas can disperse or reflect light as a result of pigment and grain. The majority of widely available, supposedly efficient and cheap white paints disperse light but they are dazzling and obtrusive. By contrast, light-reflecting, balanced white paints create warm environments. White makes shapes and dimensions visible, emphasizes areas, it reveals the architecture. White stands for neatness, purity, cleanliness. White also looks concrete, objective, insubstantial.Monochrome white can, however, look very simple, modest and clinical.

 “Entirely white, the house would be a cream pot” (Le Corbusier)

For Le Corbusier, white areas are a precondition and mood-background for the brilliancy and effect of other shades. In the proximity of white, colours take on intense, precise and qualitative importance
