AN EXPERIMENT TO CREATE THE WORLD'S MOST COLOUR-FULL COLOUR
Lovetone appears as a mid-grey square, but in fact, it contains more unique colours than any other swatch ever printed.
LOVETONE is generated using a custom code that Stuart Semple wrote, producing over 16 million completely different colours.
The code then plotted those colours randomly on a grid. Producing Lovetone.
To the naked eye, it appears as a grey colour swatch, but on closer inspection, a whole universe of colours opens up.
LOVETONE has been made using state of the art digital archival printing, with a hand-silkscreened overlay using a unique ink formulation on beautiful Somerset satin paper.
ZOOM IN (the devil is in the details)
Lovetone comes with a magnifyer, enabling you to see all 16 million + unique colours.
Or you can simply use your camera phone and zoom in to see every possible colour in the RGB spectrum.
Stuart worked with the team in his colour lab to create an entirely new ink just for LOVETONE. This ink will shift between colours right in front of your eyes and marks the creation of the first silkscreen ink of its kind.
