Dr. Hildegard Kalthegener
"Nothing learned but color!" sometimes Dr. Hildegard Kalthegener in few words jokingly sums up her career as a well-known color expert and designer. She fell in love with colour very early, painting lamps, door fittings and bicycles in her parents’ home. Some decades later, the designer wrote her PhD thesis on the correlation of artistic creativity and rationally comprehensible explanation with regard to colour decisions. For many years, she has been working in theory and practice within the fields of design, marketing and architecture, mainly in Germany and Europe, but sometimes also in Asia. The customers of Dr. Kalthegener come from trade and manufacturing in various sectors of the furniture, paint, kitchen and flooring industry; further partners are universities, architecture offices etc.
