The Most Colorful City

In recent months, pop-up and installation museums have become the summer’s go-to for museumgoers, millennials, and design enthusiasts. This summer, the Instagram-famous Color Factory will take New York by storm for the first time in August. Color Factory is a collaborative experiential exhibit designed to awaken audiences to the everyday yet brilliant presence of color.

Why are we talking about Color Factory? Just ask any interior designer: they’ll tell you that color is one of the most important ways to change the look and feel of a space.

“For interior designers color is such an important design tool,” said NYSID Professor, Francisco De Leon. “It can make a space feel large or small, warm or cool, relaxing or stimulating. For me, it is key in making a design successful and a space that people enjoy.”

While you wait for details for the Color Factory, check out Manhattan Color Walk, a special installation at the Cooper Hewitt museum, on New York’s Upper East Side.
