In his new book “The Mysterious Power of Colors”, Axel Buether gets to the bottom of the secret of colors and explains why they fulfill vital functions for nature and humans. He shows how colors affect our psyche and how we can use this knowledge in our everyday lives. How can we use colors to strengthen ourselves and increase our well-being in times of the corona pandemic? Which colors suit us? And why is “white” on the decline? Axel Buether is an architect, perceptual psychologist and professor for the didactics of visual communication at the University of Wuppertal. His main research interests are color, light and space.
