By now, you’ve probably heard that 2019 is the year of “Living Coral.” Deemed Pantone’s “Color of the Year,” this warm hue has the ability to “provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment,” making it a perfect pick-me-up—especially when coupled with caffeine.
In order to put a positive spin on your morning routine, Pantone has produced a Living Coral coffee cup. Unlike most creative mugs, this cup showcases an exceptionally modest design. Set against a white background, it only features a bold block of the honorary color and its corresponding number: 16-1546.
Much more than a minimalist work of art, this mug is intended to look like one of the studio’s signature swatches. By keeping things simple, the cup beautifully captures the look and feel of the Pantone brand, which prides itself on its “modern design aesthetic and bold use of color.”
