30 Color-Changing Design Innovations

From Color-Changing T-Shirts to Responsive Manicure Hues

— February 27, 2015 — Art & Design
These color-changing design innovations range from artistic statement tees to responsive manicures that are inspired by mood rings. Referencing different perceptions and moods, these examples are both emotive and visually striking.

These transformative design examples will vary in accordance to one's point of view and ability to measure the hues of our color spectrum. A recent photograph of a striped dress has gone viral thanks to a debate that leaves half saying it is gold and white while the other swears that it is blue and black.

From luxe fashions to home decor goods, these color-changing design innovations pair one's mood with a specific color. They include color-changing umbrellas, LED lamps and even building facades that transform when responding to movement.
