The results showedthat there were significant differences in performance influenced by thecomposition of colors in the workspace based on the number of pages asindicator. But the other measurements based on the number of lines showedno significant difference. The measurement based on the number of wordsalso showed no significant difference. With these results we can concludethat the work performance resulting in a workspace using harmonious colorcomposition on the floor, walls, and windows has no significant differencewith the performance produced in the work space with disharmonic andneutral color composition.
