duality seems like an appropriate adjective, since the pantone color institute ™ selected two colors of the year for 2016, instead of one.  pantone, a division of danaher corporation, provides products and services for the design, retail, and manufacturing industries.

according to abc news, the pantone color of the year press release ‘explained that the combination echoed a growing trend of challenging traditional perceptions about color association.’
