Caran d'Ache and Blue Klein
Since 1915, Caran d’Ache has radiated its love for colour through outstanding writing and drawing instruments. Today, the Geneva-based company unveils art in its purest form with the limited edition Caran d’Ache + Klein Blue® collection. A celebration of one of the most prolific artists of his generation, Caran d'Ache’s unique hundred year old expertise and know-how brings this new collection to life.
Caran d’Ache and Yves Klein are inextricably linked in many ways. Sharing a fascination for colour and desire to express themselves through drawing and writing, their individual quests are one and the same: to celebrate the gestures, thoughts and personality of the artist. Yves Klein is an enduring source of inspiration for generations, and his vision of art and world-famous monochromes continue to mark history.
Yves Klein’s monumental work infuses colour with a spiritual dimension, and his unique blue that he coined IKB (International Klein Blue) remains distinctive among all others. Characterised by its deep, abstract colour, Yves Klein Blue is a highly saturated ultramarine shade that calls to mind the wide blue yonder. Hailed for this blue, Yves Klein also adopted various means of expression, both writing with fountain or ballpoint pens and drawing with colour or graphite pencils.
This boundless creativity is embraced by Caran d’Ache, who has successfully provided anyone and everyone with a wide range of tools, shades and colours across generations. This expertise has been acknowledged by the Yves Klein archives, making Caran d’Ache capable of illustrating the depth of IKB. Four of the Geneva-based company’s iconic products are adorned with his infinite blue for the original limited-edition collection Caran d’Ache + Klein Blue®.
