Award-winning materials manufacturer 3form introduces an exciting new line of welcoming earth-toned shades that explore the relationship between color and natural light. From off-whites and cool greys to dusty blues, the 2021 Design Collection showcases the softer side of the brand’s color portfolio with 13 neutral hues. These natural tones help bring a feeling of comfort by allowing connectivity and privacy to coexist within a shared space.

As humans, it’s natural for us to look to the Earth for stability. Whether a feather, bark, or a wicker basket, these natural elements help us feel more grounded. These colors do that for us as well.

The colors in 3form’s 2021 Design Collection work effortlessly with organic materials like stone, ceramic tiles and wood. The desaturated tones also help promote wellness, both psychological and physical.
