Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 Living Coral generates Perspex brand’s Coral Candy
After the announcement of ‘Living Coral’ as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2019, a supreme ‘Coral Candy’ Perspex acrylic version has been colour matched and is now available under the Perspex Sweet Pastels collection
Perspex International, owner of the Perspex brand and manufacturer of Perspex acrylic sheets, today announced the release of a new colour: Perspex Sweet Pastels - Coral Candy. This new acrylic sheet has been made to match Pantone Living Coral 16-1546 colour, which has perfectly expanded the Perspex Sweet Pastels portfolio of high-performance sheets, owning a satin finish with one side gloss and the other side matt.
The Perspex colour experts, who have worked to develop, test and launch this new acrylic sheet, commented: “We use Pantone colour codes every week in our Perspex Colour Matching lab. Many of our colour match requests are for bespoke or one-off projects, so we develop each new product directly with each of our customers. However, it’s the first time that we have produced a direct match and stocked the Perspex acrylic product for wider distribution.”
Since the original launch of the Perspex Sweet Pastels collection in 2016, the colours have been consumed by people all over the world; being most popular with designers and specifiers who have a taste for a trend-led, pastel palette. Perspex Sweet Pastels - Coral Candy is the newest character and the latest colour innovation set up to boost customers’ creative ideas and apply the new trendy colour anywhere - from luxury retail displays and advertising panels to interior designs, furniture and exhibitions.
