We have contributed to shaping the history of colours and paints, now we are retelling it.

Since 1895, our family business has been dedicated to the development of innovative paints. For five generations, we have helped shape the history of colour culture – with CAPAROL ICONS we are retelling it.

Colours are part of our awareness of life, our memories, and our sense of style. A team of trend researchers, art historians, interior designers, and colourists established by Caparol dedicat included art, music, architecture, literature, design, technical progress, fashion, people, ideas, and revolutions that have lend our colour culture its various identities. This resulted in 120 modern, elegant colour icons of the CAPAROL ICONS collection.

Every single colour is a tribute to time: moments of colour history with cult status that give colours a timeless and emotive character. The fine nuances have been combined to create a harmonious collection of brilliant, extraordinary, accentuating and soft, neutral, classic shades. The curators' ambition was to create a stylistically confident collection that would meet the requirements of various styles of home interiors and lighting conditions and whose colours would be easy to combine. CAPAROL ICONS wants to inspire new ways of seeing and experiencing colours. The matt elegant surfaces of the CAPAROL ICONS interior paints create rooms with a special atmosphere, aura, and expression for people with the most exacting demands.
