With eyes closed, the average person can imagine about 20 different colors.  A creative designer or visual artist can envision as many as 50. And a professional color expert can “see” approx 80 colors in their mind’s eye. After extensive research on colors and their perception, Gmund Paper discovered that 48 is the precise number of colors that most human beings can satisfactorily perceive and understand.

Two years of developmental work in Gmund’s creative laboratory. A collection was finally ready that was finely harmonized, comprehensive, intensive and excellently combinable.
