Colour and Sensorial Design

Our perception of the world is built on multiple senses. Visual information, such as colour, dominates and provides first impressions, while the other senses of hearing, taste, smell and touch shape the overall experience. Colour and sensorial design play two overlapping roles: they provide functionality while creating character through aesthetic attributes.
