The name Pantone has become synonymous with color, and is today the worldwide standard language for color communication. From the Color Matching System developed in 1963, to the Pantone Universe creative licensing arm and recent Pantone Colorwear apparel launch, their consistency in inventing and maintaining relevance as a color authority has led to a new endeavor to spice up their mix: the Pantone Café. Designed by the architect Michel Penneman – also creator of the acclaimed Pantone Hotel in Brussels, Belgium – the Pantone Cube that houses the seasonal pop-up café was creatively constructed from a shipping container to resemble a giant Pantone color reference card.
While the psychological linking of foods to colors may not be revolutionary, such a pairing of brand and concept could not be more suited. Their long and intimate history with the emotions associated with mood and taste has allowed the Pantone Café to create a menu that paints the perfect picture of the foods it presents.
