A colour palette that exhibits the untapped colour possibilities that exist in steel

“Noble” is a colour palette displaying the six colours of tempered steel — three in warm tones and three in cool tones — with three different textures per colour: one polished, one distorted and one textured surface.

When steel is normally used in products, it is either used in its natural form or covered with a coat of paint if another colour is desired. This palette strives to exhibit the untapped colour possibilities that exist in steel, as well as its natural ability to produce structural iridescent colours.

The project aims to inspire designers to explore more humble materials, demonstrating that there is nothing more noble than sustainable design choices for the sake of biodiversity and the planet.
