The 59 room boutique Pantone Hotel is located in Brussels, Belgium and designed by the creative team of interior designer Michel Penneman and architect Olivier Hannaert. ’Forty-five years ago, Pantone, Inc. revolutionized the graphic arts industry with the launch of the colorful Pantone Matching System, enabling designers and printers to faithfully articulate and reproduce accurate color anywhere in the world. Each color identified with a unique number for precise specification. Pantone achieved global acceptance and quickly became the standard in the printing and graphic arts industries.’ Now you can experience the vibrancy and subtly of this vast color line first hand. I have to believe immersion in this color intensity would be mood bending! ‘The hotel’s seven floors were each designated a different color — a gesture meant to entice customers to select a room to match their mood. There is a rooftop terrace offering excellent views of the city.” nytimes
