Forty-five years ago, Pantone, Inc. revolutionized the graphic arts industry with the launch of the Pantone Colormatching System, enabling designers and printers to faithfully articulate and reproduce accurate color anywhere in the world. As the company moved into more lifestyle- oriented industries, the concept of a numbering system associated with corresponding color names became even more important in communicating the exactness of a color. The Pantone Hotel is part of their growing efforts to be a part of the consumer driven design revolution.
Travelers to the EU who have an eye for design will want to book a room at the Hotel, which is located in Brussels, Belgium. The hotel provides relaxing accommodations and facilities for meeting clients or simply to get inspired by the sights of the EU capital.
The hotel has meeting and events facilities that include:
- 2 highly customizable meeting rooms
- State-of-the-art audiovisual and technical equipment
- Conferenced space for up to 100 persons
- Availability by the day or by the hour
- A variety of restaurants are available within walking distance.
For many visitors to England and the EU (not to mention Japan and pretty much anyplace that isn’t the US) it can be a bit surprising to find out what an everyday impact design has on the lives of everyday citizens. While Americans may have become obsessed with this area in the last 20 years or so, Europeans have been at the cutting edge of design since the Middle Ages, so the idea of a hotel based on the concept of design qua design is an idea that has been part of the firmament for at least the past century.
For another example of interesting European hotel design, check out L’hotel, the last home of Oscar Wilde, and a good reason to visit Paris while you are on your EU getaway (as if you needed another).
