Presenting and sampling
It is difficult to plan the colour of inside rooms by using a colour fan or small colour samples. What kind of effect will the colour have on the wall? What will the sofa look like in a different fabric? Is the planned colour for the floor too dark or too bright?
The three digital presentation variants : Coloured plan drawings, image processing and 3D models
We offer three different presentation variants. Each one has its own purpose and special strenghts.
- Coloured plans (2D Graphics), for example construction drawings that have been coloured in digitally and have been given a key. These plans document all colour decisions and are the basis of tenders for contract work.
- Digital image processing (Photoshop) e.g. for the comparison of a before-after picture with the after picture using several variations of colour for comparison. A relatively quick method of visualisation, where the object to be designed is already existent and only its colour is changed partially.
- Renderings of a digital 3D model from different viewpoints and with different lighting conditions. The effect of complex colour design can be precisely assessed by using the model, including reflections and the interplay of colours, distribution of light and shade. Renderings are an invaluable help to check decisions and if necessary make corrections.
Although the computer is the most important tool when creating and presenting colour concepts: Classic hand drawn samples are still a vital part of the process. Parallel to digital models we always also work in the analog world, with real colour application and physical material.
- With the help of colour application and original material you will get first hand experience, which colour and material quality will be used by us.
Sample plates with applied colour, glazing and filling techniques
If necessary we will create applied colours in large formats, so they can be “tested” by you on site. Hang or place the sample in your rooms (as long as these already exist..) and assess the effect these samples have at different times throughout the day and under artificial lighting. Most of the time the decision is then fairly simple, because the “right” sample easily catches your eye in comparison to the other ones.
Glazing and filling techniques can only be assessed reliably with the aid of original samples. Due to the fact that we have a lot of first hand experience with glazing techniques and the collaboration with experienced craftsmen for filling techniques, we can make decision in this area simpler for you.
Drawing as the basis of a mistake-free execution
If the concept is matures and cleared for execution by you, we will create an exact colour plan as the basis for contracted work, for example for interior designers and painters. Depending on the manufacturer of the colours, flooring or furniture surfaces and other material, we choose the correct colour coordination system from all available ones (NCS, RAL classic, RAL-Design, Caparol-3D, Brillux-Scala, Stocolor, Sikkens 4041 …) and make the colour and material correspond with the delivery range.
The champion discipline; high end renderings of a 3D model
The extraordinary possibilities that rendering of digital three-dimensional architectural models brings are documented elsewhere on this page. Profit from our collaboration with the architect Jürgen Opitz (www.renderbilder.de) for your own building ideas. His visualisation are the latest in terms of technology, so that you may experience the colour of and in your rooms long before they have been built.
