Each issue of the new Prism will feature one focus topic. It will deal with issues that are relevant to every employee. We will examine the topic just like we would through a prism: by looking at it from many different perspectives and at all of its facets. To help the focus topic stand out visually, it is marked with a specific color from the light spectrum in each issue. This time, the color is green.
Transforming light into quality of life - this is the mission that drives us, which is why we have selected green as the focus color for this issue of Prism. After all, green stands for growing and thriving; for freshness, natural attributes and youth. In other words, it embodies life itself. Green also has a calming, relaxing effect. As a signal color, green symbolizes that which is positive and unproblematic. It is used for indicating operations that work smoothly or permitted actions, such as the use of green in stoplights, lights with particular functions or control buttons on technical devices.
Like nature, green is incredibly diverse. We do not see any other color with such nuance as we do green. All of its hues are found in the wavelength range between about 490 and 560 nanometers. In terms of symbolism, green is multifaceted as well, representing lush vegetation and fertility in Western society, while symbolizing feminine aspects in China. However, green sometimes also stands for things that are immature, as indicated in the word "greenhorn."
