Architects Inspire New Color Series from Sherwin-Williams
Sherwin-Williams unveiled a new architect-inspired color palette, Fluropon Architect Series, created by architects who attended the company’s “Color Mixology” event during the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 in Las Vegas. The private event brought together hundreds of architects who helped to create 10 newly developed colors of Fluropon 70% PVDF architectural metal coatings.
“We are thrilled to be unveiling these colors that architects actually created through our interactive color experience at AIA,” said Mike Bourdeau, President of Coil Coatings at Sherwin-Williams. “At Sherwin-Williams, we work to provide architects with endless color possibilities for their projects and Color Mixology was a fun and engaging way for architects to experience color like never before.”
Sherwin-Williams selected 10 unique colors of the hundreds created by architects during Color Mixology and matched them in various Fluropon 70 percent PVDF systems for exterior metal architecture. This special edition color series incorporates a wide range of color, texture and effects. Colors range from solids, to micas, to color-shifting, and each color tells a unique story.
Two of the colors highlighted in the Fluropon Architect Series include Emerald and Moonlight. Emerald, by Rebecca Blake of SmithGroup Los Angeles, has a slight color shift from blue to green and was inspired by California’s coastal colors. Moonlight, by Richard Cabrera of Marnell Architecture Las Vegas, includes blue and red influences that create vibrancy that pops in muted desert landscapes.
