Colours take up a considerable amount of space in the world, most often than not prove to be dynamically symbolic for many reasons. The universality of their existence has bled into establishing the irrefutable role they play in people’s lives.
Chromotherapy (or colour therapy) employs colours and lights (often tinted) to navigate and heal mental and physical ailments through the sense of sight. The practice allows the eyes to perceive colours and influence your mind and body in correspondence. Chromotherapy traces its known origin to a Persian philosopher Avicenna who introduced its earliest form. Subsequently, the practice evolved into a developed therapy following experiments by Jean-Michel Weiss in France.
Over time, chromotherapy has travelled from dedicated spa locations to personal spaces like people’s private shower panels. Bathroom spaces are generally associated with cleaning and rejuvenating but seldom do they make the list of healing abodes. However, over the years the alignment of design and technology has culminated in multiple manoeuvres that allow people the choice between a refreshing boost and a calming serenity, sometimes both simultaneously.
