Work in Colour

Using the colour green, Nokia reinvented their workspace. A reminder of the natural world, the colour works to rejuvenate, revitalise and inspire the people who work there.

Pick a work environment and show us how you would use colour to make the space healthier, happier and more productive.
The proposed intervention can focus on the façade, interior or landscape of the building and needs to consider how design, using colour as the main tool, can be used not only to brighten up the space but help to aid its functioning and psychological impact on the people in the environment.

Choose your palette from the extensive Plascon colour range - visit www.plascon.co.za. Presentation tip: Before and After images are a powerful way to communicate the potential transformation of your design.
