PANTONE has chosen the bright yellow 13-0647 Illuminating and the powerful 17-5104 Ultimate Gray as the two colours of the year 2021. The colour specialists are thus setting new accents in the design of work and living spaces.
Optimism and reliability played a major role in PANTONE's decision this year. With 13-0647 Illuminating, the colour of hope comes into play in 2021, as it presents itself in a radiantly positive yellow. The second colour chosen by the Colour Institute is 17-5104 Ultimate Gray, a powerful shade that stands for reliability in its purest form.
Executive Director of the PANTONE Colour Institute, Leatrice Eisemann, emphasised the powerful positive mood of the colour selection: "The combination of a consistent, ultimate grey tone with the bright yellow expresses a message of positivity backed by strength. Practical and rock-solid, yet warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope."
The two shades form a sunny, cheerful combination on the one hand, and a stable, resting one on the other, which makes for attractive accents in home design. With their diverse colour fabric variations, the exclusive brühl upholstered furniture is made for a stylish symbiosis with the two trend colours of the year. They also harmonise ideally with the warm radiance of natural wood. PANTONE's colours of the year 2021 and solid wood furniture from vitamin design makes for a perfect combination.
