Pantone Announces Color of the Year 2011

Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2011:
PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle

Energizing Honeysuckle Lifts Spirits and Imparts Confidence to Meet Life’s Ongoing Challenges

CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 9, 2010 – Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT), and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a vibrant, energetic hue, as the color of the year for 2011.

While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

Take Your Fire with You | Conmoto Fireplaces

 

 

 

Fire in the role of its life: fiercely blazing, steady and yet quite free. ROLL FIRE from Conmoto, provides warmth wherever it is installed. Anyone who values variety and is looking for all-over warmth will simply love the independent heat it radiates. As it rolls, ROLL FIRE easily balances its stainless steel tank, mounted on its roller bearings. The two glass panes fitted at the sides render it completely transparent. As it is held in place by magnets, when the tank is being filled with bio-ethanol the glass is lifted off in no time at all. However, that’s not all ROLL FIRE can do: with its wall bracket (available as an option), wall mounting is a simple matter. Alternatively, the bracket can be used to secure the fire to the floor – for those who want to see their ROLL FIRE with rather less of a life of its own. The circular heat-resistant black felt surface cares for absence of friction and a rolling slide.

Height:65 cm Width: 65 cm Depth: 22 cm Tank: 1,825 L Burning time:  ca. 2-3 h Fuel:  liquid fuel Weight:45 kg. Steel black powder coated, components: black coated  (heat-resistant wet paint finish), glass-ceramics with black circular screenprint, tank: stainless steel . Design: Sieger Design.
