Pantone™ Hotel

I was just having a five minute tea break—of which I probably have too many—and happened across this site for the Pantone™ Hotel in Brussels. Not sure quite what I make of it, but I do find it incredibly intriguing. Are Pantone™ actually on a mission to take over the world? Will they beat Richard Branson, Rupert Murdoch, Steve Jobs et al to the punch? Seems like they might be on course:

“The PANTONE HOTELTM is part of the new PANTONE UNIVERSE, an expanding line of colorful, design-driven products to touch and tempt consumers.”

If anyone’s going to Brussels any time soon, why not book into Pantone™ and let us all know what you think?

  1. Brussels is spot on, we stayed in hotel bloom http://www.hotelbloom.com/ which was a treat. They seem to be pretty clued up on swanky hotels do the Belgians!

    Although I’m not too sure how I feel about this Pantone Universe?

  9. anyone else disappointed by the website?

    Pantone universe?! definitely too far.

    The idea of more pretentious design savvy hipsters going to this hotel to boast to their friends and post pictures on their facebook makes me wretch.

    I also require continental pillows if I’m paying for luxurious bedding.

  11. I second Hotel Bloom,
    Each room has a unique mural on the wall surrounding the headboard of the bed with a description about the meaning, who painted it.. etc..

    The Hotel Bar and breakfast room design was beyond amazing! By far the best hotel I’ve stayed in!

    Also, I swear they had scent blown through the aircon in the lobby, it smelt amazing!

    But, yeah… PANTONE Hotel… I just don’t get the big deal tbh

Very nice work. Been a long time admirer of Iain’s work… I just didn’t know it was him that did it!

So, when talking about originality, why do people still use those popular artist quotes about art/idea theft? Just as unoriginal, just as idiotic. No wonder some of them defend such behaviour when all they do is ‘copy/paste’ themselves, think of …

What you are failing to understand about the current design society where young designers are being pressured to be noticed by their skills in software and “finish” not so much on their conceptual outcome.

But you need to understand as you …

“undeniable skill”? Everyone can download a free 3d model, buy or download a ready 3d light/vray/render studio and hit “render”. That’s not a skill imo. :)
