HML

In 2006, Mondo commissioned Giulio Bertagna and Aldo Bottoli’s B&B Colordesign Studio to conduct a research project on colour. The study arose from Mondo’s belief that surfaces such as rubber and vinyl, especially when coloured, can contribute towards improving the quality of environments, especially public spaces.

Mondo continues to develop products that, through colour and design, improve the quality of life of the end user.They are technologically advanced and purposely designed to satisfy the requirements of specific areas of use while reducing the costs of the product lifecycle. Mondo manufactures products that can be recycled at the end of their useful life and continues to upgrade and improve products in accordance with future international standards.

 

The new colours designed for the workplace have been grouped according to the HML system created by Giulio Bertagna and Aldo Bottoli of B&B Colordesign and are arranged on thematic cards. These are intended to help designers choose colours and generate samples according to chromatic groups (yellows [Y], reds [R], blues [B] and greens [G]), and orders them according to colour frequencies (high [H], medium [M] and low [L]), that correspond to to long, medium and short wavelengths.

The New Colours Project emphasizes the tones, saturation, and levels of transparency considered appropriate for different kinds of use and different rubber and vinyl flooring.

The colour designers have created different collections that offer an overlap in terms of colour blends. They aim to promote the use of rubber as an original and revolutionary material as unique as wood, rock or marble in terms of its own well-defined identity.
The colours of the themed product palettes are like those of real palettes, on which a painter’s invention of colours are essential to create the harmony and mood of the composition.

All the samples forming part of the same palette can be matched easily and work to develop the mood of the palette itself. Through this the process of colouration is rendered simpler, and enhances the possibility to create surface effects that are consistently different and unique.
