Elevate Your Workspace With Pantone’s Color of the Year 2021

- 2 min read

Easily incorporate “Illuminating” and “Ultimate Gray” inspired acoustic solutions into your office.

In December of last year, global color authority Pantone revealed its 2021 Color of the Year selection. Instead of choosing only one winner, as in previous years, Pantone opted for two: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. The two independent colors work strongly on their own. Yet when paired together, create an aspirational and complementary duo.

“This is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted, this is essential to the human spirit,” describes Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Illuminate’s bright and cheerful yellow is the perfect shade for spring while providing an optimistic promise of a sunshine-filled day. On the other hand, Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements and encourages feelings of composure.

Looking for ways to introduce the bright yellow “Illuminate” and sophisticated “Ultimate Gray” inspired hues into your workspace, while improving acoustics at the same time? Then our acoustic solutions might just be what you’re looking for. Take a look at some of our projects and products below.
