Dulux Colour Forecast 2021

Following on from their successful presentation on the science of colour delivered back in May, the Institute’s major national partner Dulux joins us again to showcase the colour trends architects will work with in 2021.

Surrounded by unfamiliarity, we’re currently facing a ‘new normal’, far removed from our general comforts of connection and sociality. The Dulux Colour Forecast addresses our current landscape, and we’ll see 2021 expressed through palettes that prioritise natural colours and textures that promote comfort and security, with moments of stronger colour to brighten our outlook and wellbeing.  A fascinating session not to be missed.

Join Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux’s Colour & Communications Manager, as she takes us through another fascinating look into the world of colour in architecture.
