The chemistry of colour

<p>Laboratory or &ldquo;colour kitchen&rdquo;</p>

Laboratory or “colour kitchen”

In this area, samples and formulae are displayed with the early secrets of dye, as a prelude to the second phase of the permanent exhibition, which is set in a laboratory or "colour kitchen". The formulae, a kind of colour recipe, were produced by the factory chemists. They are jealously guarded to prevent the competition from stealing them.
