Pantone Color of the Year
Pantone has been making a Pantone Color of the Year proclamation in early December since 2000. And although other paint manufacturers have copied the New Jersey-based company’s practice, Pantone’s pick reigns supreme.

This year, Pantone’s color is “Living Coral.” And while some might say that Pantone’s choice is a bit on the nose – after all, coral is a color that we see every year – we think that there might be more to Pantone’s choice than meets the eye.

The Future Looks Circular
The future looks circular. We will refurbish, remanufacture, reuse, and recycle products to reduce waste and create an economy that thrives on the ecological value these products create. This circular future will reinvent design as we know it.

In a circular one, we’ll take back used products, break them down into their component parts, and then use those parts to make new products. The result will be less waste and a closed loop system that keeps valuable resources in circulation for as long as possible. This shift will require a fundamental change in the way we think about design, but it is a change that is already underway. READ MORE NOW
