Arts Therapy UK
Inspired by the distinctive style and geometry of the famous Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872 - 1944), the contemporary use of colours in the Rubik's Cube series are specifically created for Healthcare settings and patients with neurological degenerations. The artworks contrasting colours define the environment, and the colours aim to activate and stimulate the brain cells.
Blues are generally noted to have a calming and restful effect
Greens can reduce central nervous system activity and help people feel calm and restful
Red increases brain wave activity and can stimulate the production of adrenalin into the bloodstream, and so is recommended for high activity areas and communal spaces where stimulation is required
Orange being a warm colour, it is closely related to red and shares some of its properties. It is also an earth-based colour and like green, it often produces associations with nature and natural environments.
