Colourpin design

In my job as an interior designer and communicator in the paint industry, Colourpin is a constant companion. Color is incredibly complex and we perceive all colors in our own way. That is why it is so valuable to have a tool that easily tells me the composition of the various components that makes us perceive a color such as blue.

– Sandra Wigfors, Interior Decorator
