We study the quantum plane associated to the coloured quantum group formula7 and solve the problem of constructing the corresponding differential geometric structure. This is achieved within the R-matrix framework generalising the Wess-Zumino formalism and leads to the concept of coloured quantum space. Both, the coloured Manin plane as well as the bicovariant differential calculus exhibit the colour exchange symmetry. The coloured h-plane corresponding to the coloured Jordanian quantum group formula13 is also obtained by contraction of the coloured q-plane.
