Soft Abstraction: The Power of Contemplation Guides the New Theme Palette of the Futura Collection 2022-2025 ―
The Futura Collection of powder coating colors by AkzoNobel, renewing its theme palettes every four years, is a documentation of social trends unfolding during the period of its elaboration: the Global Aesthetics Center, AkzoNobel’s research branch, translates its insights into colors for metal architectural components, reading into -and also, forming- the market needs for the immediate future. The new Futura Collection 2022-25, discerning the need for calm and detachment from unpredictable situations after the pandemic, dedicates one of its three theme palettes to abstraction and bliss, creating “Soft Abstraction”.
Driven by the power of contemplation, the colors of the Soft Abstraction palette –the most extensive one in the Futura Collection 2022-25- cover a beautiful range of neutral, soft tones and fine metallics. Off-white and light colors, neutral silvers, ochres, blue-gray and petrol, bring vitality and health to open spaces, laying the foundations for people to connect and recharge. The palette includes 18 selected powder coating shades in the Interpon D2525 superdurable technology, specially elaborated for architectural applications.
