Colour displays a vital role in the exhibition environment especially in Exhibition space. Illumination, show of the exhibits’ colour and details, and atmosphere creation can’t work without colour. But both natural colour and artificial colour do harm to the exhibits, which will reduce the strength of the paint and material, even because the paint fading and paper curl. The damage can’t be recovered, and the exhibits will not exist anymore if the colour design is ignored. So the relationship between the exhibits protection and the art visual will become one of the core issues of exhibition space design research.
