New colours for a new era

Text

Every eight years, Montana develops a new colour palette. The furniture company’s latest, expansive palette has come into being in collaboration with expert and colour-alchemist, Margrethe Odgaaard. The new scheme explores how the colours relate to one another, to our bodies, to other materials, and to their spatial surroundings.

30 new colours

The new palette consists of 30 brand new lacquer colours, ten grey, white and black, which are surpassed from the old palette and two veneers: a total of 42 variants. The new colours are to be found in the stores' exhibitions from August – but can already be ordered on request from week 23. See the full palette below.

A body-mind philosophy

The process of developing a new colour scheme – and, by extension, of peering into the future of colours (a fundamental part of the Montana DNA) – has been a long, winding, and fascinating road. The process of developing the new colour scheme has been rooted in a body-mind philosophy: the belief that our bodies long to be cared for, to be heard, and to have space. The colours should, in every way possible, refer to the body and relate to sensory perception and tactility. The names of the colours all refer to the senses and are easy to remember and pronounce examples include Truffle, Pomelo, Chamomile, Oyster, Mushroom and Pine.
