Feeling blue? Got a case of the mean reds? Whatever shade you’re feeling, they probably have it at the Color Factory. Oh Happy Day built the immersive installation, devoted entirely to color. Stripes, prisms, bold monochrome design, and more decorate the stunning space. And, according to their website, the whole thing sounds pretty freakin’ fun.

Located in San Francisco, the building features two full stories of massive, color-themed installations from various artists. I mean, on the site’s FAQ, one question is “Do you have bathrooms?” and their answer is “Yes, and they’re worth checking out” which is basically the best way to answer that question.
Expect to encounter monochrome ball pits, brightly colored sweets, confetti, disco balls, neon, and plenty more. The place is basically designed to be an Instagram-worthy bonanza. Friends will definitely be green with envy when they see your pictures here.
And, according to Architectural Digest, the Color Factory fun doesn’t end once you’re done visiting.
The trio worked with Rebecca Wright to devise a map that leads to vibrant experiences around the city, including a custom-made jukebox that plays color-themed songs. They also made sure that guests would be able to capture their time at Color Factory, by installing photo stations throughout the building.
Even more nitty-gritty stuff
