The NCS Atlas 2050 is the must-have tool for effective colour communication and colour identification which explains how colours are related to each other in NCS system and Colour Space using the NCS Colour Circle and the 40 NCS Colour Triangles.

The NCS Atlas now includes 100 new colours bringing the total number of colours to 2050 and presents them in a clear, concise format, making it an ideal reference tool for architect and interior design studios and graphic designers. This multifunctional tool is suitable for point-of-sales, colour training, customer guidance or as an office reference tool.

This essential tool helps you find the colour you are looking for quickly and easily by showing the NCS Colour Circle and the NCS triangle for the hue. Compare colours and create combinations to make the right colour decision for your team and your clients.

The 100 new colours added in 2022 are all low chromatic colours, these can be found at the front of the NCS Atlas 2050. The NCS Atlas provides a separate page for the neutral greys and low chromatic colours (tinted greys) and three pages of tinted whites in response to demand.

The NCS Atlas 2050 is perfect for deepening your own understanding of the logic that the NCS System is based on and to further understand the relationship between colour and light.

If you also need a portable fan guide to take onto site then the NCS Index 2050 is the perfect companion to the Atlas 2050. A4 and A6 sheets of individual colour are also available to send to suppliers or clients.
