A smooth eggshell white when it’s first applied to the wall, MoodPaint starts to work within hours, seamlessly shifting color whenever people are present in the room. As people continue to spend much more time indoors due to COVID-19 measures, the product could help people find more balance at home, as well as in common public spaces.
“Research has long shown the effect color can have on human emotion and behavior,” says Sara Crabbe, Color Scientist at AkzoNobel. “Soft blues can soothe patients in the hospital, energizing yellows can stimulate your appetite in the kitchen, grounding neutrals like our Color of the Year 2021 Brave Ground make you feel comfortable in your living areas. Now you don’t have to choose just one color for your space – with MoodPaint, your walls will always follow your lead.”
In the final stages of development, scientists are now fine-tuning MoodPaint technology and exploring its applications beyond decorative paint to a variety of industries. For more information on other exciting AkzoNobel innovations, visit letspaintthefuture.com/innovations/
