One . Grain . Decors
30 colours in plain pigments (One) + 30 colours in stippled pigments (Grain) + 12 designed pattern (Decors)
A new product, coming from B&B Colordesign, Cibicworkshop and Mondo cooperation.
A combination of scientific research on colours, design and technology.
Mondo Idea is an innovative, unique system of rubber floorings, combining coordinated and complementary colours (in stippled and plain pigments and designed pattern), ordered into chromatic families, in relation to their field of use.
Mondo Idea gives a new identity to rubber, offering to designers and architects new decorative opportunities, according to their creativity.
The new colours are designed for their field of use and ordered into thematic files. The HML System, designed and registered by Giulio Bertagna and Aldo Bottoli, allows the user to think about the colours in relation to their field of use and order them into NCS (Natural Colour System) colour wheel thematic files.
This system can order the colour samples according to their chromatic families (Y = yellow, R = red, B = blue and G = green) and then subdivide them further, according to their frequency (H = high, M = medium and L = low frequency, corresponding respectively to their short, medium and long wave lengths).
This organisation of the samples allows the user to immediately check that colours are placed in the correct perceptive sequence and to assess the tonal changes and range available for each chromatic family.
A similar precision and chromatic determination not only aims to help immediately identify the colour and product most adapted to the type of use that the rubber will be allocated, but has a primary purpose of highlighting the development path taken by Mondo with its product.
The rubber acquires its own well defined identity that embraces all environments and possible uses.
Shades are sought, and in particular suitable levels of saturation and brightness to be represented by the material, working in almost all the environments with colours capable of creating a material that appears from a natural source.
The encounter between these new and predominant elements and the creativity of the Cibicworkshop, founded by Aldo Cibic and Tommaso Corà, has forced the rubber to become more of an intrinsic part of the range of instruments that make an environment thrive, playing a key role within the creativity process and actual vitality of the design.
The use of a patterned and decorative rubber helps to characterise and personalise the spaces.
The collection provides a vast range of colours in stippled and plain pigments and a collection of decorations with specially designed patterns.
The combination of colours and different levels of decoration offer infinite possibilities in terms of arrangement and composition, allowing the material to be used in more varied environments and on different scales.
Within the colour families developed for the educational environment, this flooring is created with a focus on a relationship between hue and brightness with increased use of the yellow and red chromatic families for primary and secondary schools and blue and green for universities. By looking at the three selections together, you can see the progression of the brightness.
The colours darken from the primary schools towards the universities, while saturation values start off low for primary schools, to allow a certain contrast, but also the possibility of stimulating, bright matches, increasing for the secondary schools, reinforcing the more decisive tone of the colours, then drastically reducing for the universities, to soft, solid hues which are highly suited to matching but can also be used individually with distinctive, introspective and attractive colours.
The colours selected for secondary schools have a strong emphasis on yellow and red but for primary and elementary schools they subtly darken and are more saturated, having a more bold and lively presence. This is why they are more stimulating, involving and sympathetic to the user’s vivacity, who may easily find in them an instinctive identification.
The colours developed for university buildings present an increased use of the blue and green chromatic families in which colour values darken and the saturation diminishes through soft and solid tones that are highly adapted to combination, but can be used individually as colours with a strong identity.
The colours selected are balanced across all four chromatic families. This characteristic makes them particularly well suited to compositions for inlays with a low level of contrast, aimed at creating a soft and bright multi-coloured effect.
This suggests unconfined spaces, helping the child to achieve a greater symbiosis with the hospital environment. The colours
are bright and reassuring, with no tones, saturations or brightness that could lead to states of anxiety or depression in the young patients. The range offers a gradual progression of hues, and covers the entire chromatic spectrum. The high level of whiteness in all the proposed colours makes walking around easy, even on high frequency hues.
The selected colours are heavily biased towards the yellow family, in order to warm and brighten up the treatment rooms. There is a muted orangey-red which is a great idea for common areas and canteens. The blue range is a little darkened and muted and oriented towards green, and the two greens are organised in order to create inlays with a rebalancing, reassuring effect in order to
soften the “operating theatre” effect that could be created by the bluish greens.
It is a myth that the best colours for a hospital are mostly those that are around cold green or blue because they are “tranquillising colours”. If not properly counterbalanced by low-frequency colours (orangey yellows, oranges and orangey reds), these colours can produce a state of bleakness, depression or excessive introspection, damping the patient’s ability to communicate and triggering negative thinking and anxiety.
The colours of this family belong exclusively to the yellow and green families.
They have been taken from the natural environment and recapture the shades and tones of foliage, grass and earth.
This chromatic source makes them extremely easy to mix and match. Even the seemingly brighter tones form part of a biological memory which makes the environment pleasant, reassuring and welcoming. Particular attention was given to the problem of elderly patients’ lack of ability to move around, hence colours were chosen from a natural source and for “reading the ground.” These colours make it easier to focus and achieve a balanced interpretation of the ground when walking, partly in consideration of the fact that this type of user normally has poor sight. These subjects tend to prefer to look at nearby individual horizontal surfaces, having a partial vision of the environment.
In such cases it is best to create guide routes with inlay and indicate in different ways particular bedroom and common room areas. For these purposes, a strong but non-invasive and not excessively severe composition works best.
The palette offers three colour groups with different levels of whiteness, well distributed between the four different chromatic families. The range includes contrasting colours with a strong identity, particularly suited to an office environment requiring a distinguished style, but also muted colours studied to avoid visual fatigue and create low -, medium - and high - contrast inlays, making it possible to design different levels of flooring reflection in response to illumination that is often too uniform, thus following suggestions from research carried out in the psychophysical environment aimed at improving perceptive comfort in the workplace.
In contrast to the chromatic colours, the achromatic colours appear with without a trace of yellow, green, red or blue. Thus we find black, white and a scale based on brightness of the achromatic greys. Because of their achromatic nature, they are easily placed with any of the colours. If placed with a vivid colour, they typically seem tinged by a complementary colour.
That is to say, they can appear slightly violet if placed next to yellow, bluish when next to orange, brown or reddish when next to green, greenish when next to red, pink or purple, or orange when placed next to blue.
