Life/work balance will continue into the decade as an important consideration with a 24/7 schedule being optimized for families, companies, and individuals. Mist represents this continuing, sweeping cultural shift to when and where activities take place, how they will be accessed, and how it best affects individual’s lives. Mistis a hue to give pause, refresh and reconsider, then move forward with revived purpose. In the designed space, Mist will be present in interiors as paint, as well as textiles and small consumer goods, creating an atmosphere of ease and trust.
Mist is imbued with a promise of thoughtfulness, courtesy, and simplicity. In addition to its freshness, it is also a color of contemplation, of setting the record straight, and can suggest an aura around ideas of renewal and ecology. Mere sustainability is not enough, the goal is for rethinking uses for products, their waste and byproducts. It is an encouraging moment for design and Mist is a color that suggests the transcendence in creating new products. Mist has neither gender nor age, making it ideal for fashion and consumer electronics, as well as transportation. With its ability to take on varying sheen levels and special effects with ease, Mist is a color easy to embrace.
Mist’s pale blue hue, touched with a whisper of toned grey and minimal chroma, is spirited in its lightness. Whether embracing an interior, parading down a catwalk, enhancing a personal device, or moving through a city, Mist is a color of movement and progress.
As dawn rises, so does Mist, a color for the new decade.
