Pantone has chosen two colours as Colour of the Year for 2016.
This is the first time in the history of Pantone that the colour of the year comes in two hues. "Serenity" and "Rose Quartz".
The Pantone Color Institute has chosen the colour of the year for over sixteen years. An initiative that influences product design in a lot of industries. In 2015, they chose the wine-red colour Marsala (Pantone 18-1438). But this year, they decided to go with two colours of the year. The harmonious combination of baby-blue "Serenity" (Pantone 15-3919) and soft "Rose Quartz" (Pantone 13-1520) contributes to making you feel more peaceful and be in inner harmony.
These two colours are so unique in that each colour also enhances the other, when combined. There is a lovely balance between the warmer pink and the cooler blue. "The colour combination reflects cohesion and wellbeing and also looks positive and peaceful. Pinks and blues are also inextricably linked with the different genders. So you could say that the fact that we chose two colours symbolises the modern idea of gender flexibility", explains Leatrice Eiseman, the CEO of the Pantone Color Institute.
