The Pantone Hotel, designed by Michel Penneman and Olivier Hannaert, invites its visitors to discover Brussels through a coloured lens in an environment with all necessary comfort. The first hotel in the world inspired by the Pantone colour code, shows on each of the seven floors a different colour that returns in the details in every room such as the unique pictures of Victor Levy, an abstract version of Brussels’s city landscape. The grafic design and the logo, based on the iconic Pantone chip, were designed by Base Design.

The Commerce Design Award has been launched in Montreal (Canada) in 1995 in order to stimulate local merchants to invest in the furnishing of their commercial spaces with the assistance of a qualified professional. The initiative spread immediately to cities all over the world (Saint-Etienne, Marseille, Lyon, Nantes, Luxemburg, Eindhoven, …) among which our own capital that celebrates this year the second edition of the Commerce Design Brussels competition, coordinated by Pro Materia and Design September (with the support of the City of Montreal, Brussels Capital Region, Atrium, Brussels Louise and institutional and private partners).
