Pantone<sup>®</sup> Colour of the Year 2019

Pantone® Colour of the Year 2019

An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.

It’s that time of year again! Pantone®, the top colour authority for the design industry, has announced their Colour of the Year for 2019: PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral.This colour prediction tradition has swayed a number of industries decisions for over 20 years in both product development and purchasing; from fashion & interiors to product packaging and graphic design. Companies of all sizes that are trend focused will always take notes from the Pantone® Colour Institute. After thorough research into environmental and emotional factors across the world that affect trend shifts and colour influences, the Pantone® Colour of the Year is selected.

Consideration surrounding the world of entertainment, social media, art, fashion & design as well as new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color are all valued in the showdown to finding the perfect shade to crown.

Living Coral is both energetic and calming, embracing our natural surroundings and simultaneously, displaying as an animated manifestation within the technological world.

The closest colour to the COY in our standard range is one of our PERSPEX® Sweet Pastels products, Raspberry Sherbet SA 4274, offering one side gloss and one side matt for the best of both worlds. Another product range completely relevant to Colour of the Year 2019 is PERSPEX® Coral, a shimmering 3D illusion effect within the acrylic sheet that symbolises the appearance of real coral reef. The colour seen depends on the viewing angle, due to the special metallic pigments presented in the sheet, with an almost unpredictable shift.

The choice doesn’t stop there, with our own in house colour lab, we can produce colour matched bespoke sheet depending on your specific needs. Get in touch today, to find out what is possible…
