Cromie
by Refin Ceramiche

Description

Cromie is a series of through-body porcelain tiles and decorative glazed tiles. With a carefully conceived color palette that ranges from warm to cool, Cromie is designed around the Natural Color System (NCS), a color notation system that classifies color according to the way the human eye perceives it. Unlike arbitrary numeric

systems, NCS is capable of identifying and accurately notating any of the 10 million colors the eye can perceive. Relying on the six elementary colors (White, Black, Yellow, Red, Blue, Green), the NCS notation classifies a color in relation to each of the six elementary colors.

As an example, the NCS notation S 1050-Y90R would translate as follows: the letter S before the complete notation indicates that the color is part of the NCS Second Edition. The number 1050 indicates the shade (i.e. the amount of blackness (S) and the chromaticity (C)). In this case, the blackness, or darkness (S), is 10% and the chromaticity (C) is 50%. Y90R indicates the similarity to the other two elementary colors, Y (yellow) and R (red). Y90R indicates yellow with 90% of red.

Neutral gray tints have no shade (chromaticity equals 0) and are notated by the nuance followed by -N, as it is neutral color. 0300-N is white, followed by 0500-N, 1000-N, 1500 N, etc. up to 9000-N, which is black.
