Jotun Paints has launched Pearl, a new paint that provides a new concept in decorative effects by creating a unique ‘Mother of Pearl’ finish for interior walls.
Pearl’s distinct high-quality shimmer responds to the positioning and intensity of any light source or intelligent lighting solution, allowing the soft wavy effects normally found in a real pearl to shine through, says a spokesman for the Norway-headquartered paint manufacturer. Adding a new dimension in terms of interior solutions, Pearl can provide a dramatic or subtle backdrop to match any designer’s objectives, he adds.
Jotun Paints regional interior concept manager Linda Al Tarifi says the new product will enable designers to achieve something that no other product can.
“When applied correctly, Pearl can be combined with intelligent lighting to create a lustrous or tranquil backdrop for a room, enabling designers to use interior walls as a design asset, impressing clients who are better informed of special finishes and are more demanding of them,” she explains. “In addition, the product has practical benefits, which will make it a popular choice, easy to clean and environmentally friendly. We anticipate it will be a popular finish for contemporary hotels, apartments and villas.”
Available in four colour schemes (Retreats, Expression, Feng Shui and Agency), Pearl is anticipated to be a successful decorative offering from Jotun Paints’ premium range. Each family of colour includes four shades, all of which aspire to a particular mood and character, allowing the customer’s aspiration to be the colour guide. In addition to the 16 standard colours, Jotun’s Multicolour machines can provide a further number of tints and shades of the revolutionary finish.
“In today’s market, there is a trend for muted metallics, symbolising the modern day we live in and its textures,” continues Al Tarifi. “As well as allowing designers to incorporate an extra feature in terms of wall finish, Pearl will also add a new perspective in terms of lighting solutions.”
This high-quality waterborne product has been designed for interior use only and should be applied by trained painters to achieve maximum effect, she adds.
