Shining a light on Derby

Bondholder intu Derby has brought together colour psychologists, light artists and designers to help boost the mood and wellbeing of its shoppers, by creating 'The Light House Experience'.

A study conducted by intu shows yellow makes us happiest, with blue and green helping to ease anxiety, and this has been transposed into three glowing 'light houses' launched in Derby on 24th February, which will visit 12 other intu centres around the UK.

Adam Tamsett, General Manager at intu Derby, said: "We are committed to the wellbeing of our people and those coming to visit and have spent a long time working with colour psychologists, artists and designers to create colourful experiences to enjoy that are scientifically shown to positively influence our moods."
