A reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection. Today Pantone revealed the Color of the Year 2020: Classic Blue 19-4052. We have also chosen this for our color of the month here on Around. As technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all, it is easy to understand why we gravitate to colors that are honest and offer the promise of protection.

MINDSPACES theme moves between the material and the intangible, as well as the real and the imaginary. It explores the spatial solutions, materials, colours, scents, lighting and objects that evoke emotions, catering for various needs in life.
