March 4th, 2014
“Danxia – which means “red sunset” – is not a place, but the name of an extraordinarily unique type of landform.
“Found solely in several locations throughout China and often referred to as the “Rainbow Mountains”, Danxia landform is characterised by spectacular red cliffs, incredibly colourful mountain ranges, contrasting forests, winding rivers and majestic waterfalls.
“Formed by stratied layers of reddish sandstone and minerals, the terrain has over time been eroded into a series of mountains surrounded by coloured earth and unusual rock formations.
“Now listed amongst World Heritage sites, Ontera wish for this amazing and beautiful landform to provide creative inspiration for the design professional”
– James Mfula, Ontera Design Manager.
The Danxia range is available in six distinctive designs, which express the diversity and vibrance of the natural phenomenon they are inspired by.
Sunset bronze using a harmonious blend of blue hues, presenting an adventurous palette to support design experimentation.
Conveying a seamless, welcoming ambiance, this palette offers deep sandy grey hues supported by subtle pinkish purple tones.
Smokey charcoal classic grey tones provide a stylish versatility for all project spaces. Perfect for high traffic areas.
A versatile palette of foggy yet soothing greys with a splash of orange to stimulate the senses and bring highlight areas to life.
Elegant night sky dark tones interspersed with bold blue and peach hues – providing a vibrant palette for design innovation.
