With three extended color concepts, HEWI has given the design classic 477/801 a different look that appeals to the senses. Color affects us on an emotional level, creates atmosphere, and brings authenticity and individuality to interiors. With the targeted use of color, it also becomes possible to influence the sense of well-being in a room. For HEWI, color is essential for adapting a design icon that is almost perfect in terms of design and function to current trends and increasing the scope for design in planning. The vitalizing shades of coral, aqua blue, and pure white make up the new Tricolor color canon for health care buildings in the care division. Especially for children’s hospitals, kindergartens, and daycare centers, HEWI presents the editions apple green, May green, and coral as well as aqua blue, steel blue, and apple green – gentle, calming, and harmonizing tones in terms of color effect.  

The HEWI series 477/801 is specially designed for health care buildings and scores high with its Tricolor color canon.
