Overview Farger til folket!

Did you know that gray cars crash the most and that red cars crash the least? That white, which is used more and more often in both institutions and schools, increases stress, decreases concentration and is a catalyst for headaches? What are colors, why do we need them and what do we use them for?

In this book, color expert Dagny Thurmann-Moe battles against an increasingly more colorless existence. She shows us how Norway has gone from being colorful and full of impressions to being a landscape of gray and white, even in the summer.

In the first part of the book, she gives an introduction to what colors are, why people need colors, and what we use them for. She explains what a color palette is and how to use it. In the second part, she envisages the use of color in architecture, public spaces, public institutions and on cars. Finally, she shows how we can use colors inside our houses and in our wardrobes, and that colors have a natural place – no matter what style you wish to have.

Reviews Farger til folket!

"[Boken] er en vitamininnsprøytning inn i grå arkitektur, helhvite interiør og svarte klær". [...] Boken er like egnet for en novise som en fagperson, og du kan både lese den som en kunnskapsbase, eller bare bla og la deg inspirere av bildene. [...] Farger til folket er rett og slett en bra bok! Den er øyeåpnende, inspirerende og lærerik."
