PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral

Living Coral 16-1546 has been named as Pantone of the year 2019.

Pantone Colour Institute describes the colour as – ”An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”

This year’s vibrant colour reflects colour found beneath the waves, which is sadly becoming more elusive. PANTONE Living Coral can be found deep within the our eco system in coral reefs emerged in a kaleidoscope of colour and wildlife.

Social media and digital technology has also become a platform were this warm and vibrant colour is becoming ever more present, as well as a host of other platforms such as the ”entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact colour, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.” explains Pantone Colour Institute.

”It is refreshing to see the colour of the years isn’t green and we are finally starting to become more in touch with the environment  and that we don’t have to use green to-do this. Its brings great awareness to some of the problems we are facing in the modern age. This bright and refreshing colour can be used on its own or as an accent in modern colours scheme” Jason Holmes -Forbo Head of Design Textiles.
