An artistic moment mixing movements, emotions and expressions... Intense and contrasting colours, opposing but also complementary, IKB O (IKB for "International Klein Blue", O for Orange) pays homage to the artist Yves Klein for his monochromes of a deep ultramarine blue and an orange monochrome such as he was able to paint at the beginning of his career as a post-war modern artist.

Blue can be synonymous with coldness and is generally associated with the ocean or the sky.

Historically, the different shades of blue have been, for example, associated with the monarchy, but also as blue for men working in factories, it is a colour used for the emblematic brand Levi's, but also the blue helmets chosen by the UN because it is a peacekeeping force.


Symbolically, blue is a sign of serenity and peace. It is a term that is used for a musical genre which is the blues.

Psychologically, blue is generally associated with melancholy, dreams or fear, sentiment and naivety (being blue)

Spiritually, the third eye chakra, blue in colour and called Ajna, is located at the sixth position from the bottom of the spine. It is related to clairvoyance, intuition, inner vision and also to the capacity for imagination.

Orange, an invigorating colour derived from a fusion of the colours red and yellow, belongs to warmth and can be associated with fire, autumn and various fruits and/or vegetables. 

Historically, this colour became fashionable in the sixties with the Hippie movement. It was used in art, design and fashion. Buddhist monks used this colour for their outfits, which symbolised renunciation for them.

Psychologically, it is a benevolent colour that will be there to warn you rather than, unlike red, to punish. It also brings vitality and open-mindedness.

Spiritually, the Sacral Chakra, which is orange in colour and called Swadhistana, is second from the bottom of the spine. It is linked to the life force, sexuality and the joy of living...

Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not....All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.

Yves Klein, 1960 (IKB 3)
