Pantone, the international brand best known for its spot colour palettes, has opened a hotel located in the heart of Brussels just a 5-minute walk from the fashionable Avenue Louise and Metro Louise. Why a hotel?
Welcome to the center of the colour universe. The Pantone Hotel invites you to experience the city of Brussels through a lens of color and a spectrum of comforts. From the moment you arrive, our “hotel of colours” will awaken your senses to an array of delights and playful surprises.
RGB or CMYK?
Often people have come to us quering the difference between these colour modes and what they should use. The color systems used by scientists and artists are entirely different.
