Sponsored by Rocell


For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.

The Pantone Color of

the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s colour experts at Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new colour influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, travelling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact colour, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.” - Source Pantone Color Institute.

Rocell, as a leader in all things design related, understands better than any manufacturer the inherent need for trend-worthy designs and the importance of influencing designs from the world that surrounds us. Our bathware and lifestyle solutions have been manufactured with a wide range of influences, but certain collections, be it tiles, bathware accessories, bathroom designs have been derived from nature.

Pantone’s colour of the year highlights how elements that have contrasting properties, with unique elements to each can be different, yet coexist so perfectly. Our designs aim to achieve the same effect, with our free-standing bathware and uniquely designed accessories, giving your bathroom and living space, an innovative design edge that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. Our colours range from neutral palettes to bold blues, and we pride ourselves in ensuring that our collections are worthy of your home.

These colours can captivate your loved ones by creating a living space of elegant beauty while transforming your ordinary rooms into beautifully created spaces. Use cushions, curtains, a throw or even tiles and bathware accessories to achieve this unique aesthetic.

The unique yellow and grey are iconic colours worthy of the new year, as the palette symbolises and encapsulates the past year gone by, in an utterly unique manner. The yellow stands for happiness, hope, the dawn of a brighter future, while the stark grey, highlights the struggle of the past year. It mimics the crestfallen attitudes, moods and dreams.

The combination of these two colours reinforces positivity and aspirational nature of humanity. With perseverance, in life and design, great things lie ahead of us. Are you ready for a year of illumination?
