shapes hexagon

The hexagon is made of horizontal (relaxing) lines and diagonal (movement) lines

The is a tension between these lines, yet there is order as your eye moves continuously - yet jerky - around the perimeter as it would with a circle.

Because a hexagon has a zig zag pattern, and the eye moves around the shape in a repetitive rhythmic motion, we feel that it should be represented by purple. 

Purple is a spiritual, meditative colour. We feel that the rhythm of a hexagon is perfect!

If you continue the lines of a hexagon you can make a triangle or a square.

Using a hexagon in an environment:

It will create a sense of tension between the lines. If it is used as a group (eg tile pattern) there becomes a rhythmic sense of order.

Add artwork with diagonal lines to add to the energy in the space.
