Have you ever heard of the farmer who painted his cows green so that his cows might give him more milk? It is difficult to say whether he got more milk from his cows, but in a fact, color affects people in several
ways. It was not for nothing that back in the 1950s the Swiss psychotherapist Max Lyuscher, the author of the famous color test, proved the influence of color on certain functions of the human body. Thus, a red color raises blood pressure, and the same blue color, on the contrary, soothes. Undoubtedly, wise approach to color in architecture and design have many possibilities. And realizing the importance of using color in everyday life, many creative people, including artists, architects and designers work in this direction. Among the brightest and most talented designers, in particular, is the Frenchwoman Emmanuelle Moureaux, who creates unusually beautiful ideas of color application in interior and architecture. In her creative collection are several art installations, and the most notable – “Forest of Numbers”, “Christmas Forest in 100 colors”, “Color Of Time”, and “1000 colors recipe”.
Born in 1971, France, Emmanuelle Moureaux is living in Tokyo since 1996.

According to Emmanuelle Moureaux, bright colors perfectly cheer up and, in general, raise our mood. And she proves this fact with her colorful art projects. For example, “100 colors” project, created specially for the festival Shinjuki Creators Festa 2013, which took place in Tokyo. The designer used exactly 100 colors for the project. And it was impressive: the sheets of colored paper attached to the ceiling look very impressive and fit organically into the space. And for the audience, the installation turns into a color therapy session.

Meanwhile, Muro admits that working with different colors brings her great satisfaction. “When I first came to Tokyo, I was amazed by the abundance of different color shades, which, literally, “created” space. These impressions inspired me to develop my own design concept – “shikiri”, which can be roughly translated from Japanese as “the division (creation) of space by means of color.”
