The much-anticipated announcement of the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2023 last week, when Pantone 18-1750 – or Viva Magenta – was revealed as the next highlighted colour, has inspired many social media posts incorporating the hot shade into different contexts.
In this spirit, Spanish bathroom manufacturer Acquabella has given its freestanding Opal Quiz bath a 'Magenta makeover' and showcased it in Viva Magenta.
The Pantone Coloru of the Year selection is intended to reflect what is going on culturally and in society at large.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said of the latest selection: "In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known. Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength."
Acquabella's Opal Quiz bath is available in the full Acquabella colour range, (Standard, Natural and RAL) and measures 180 cm x 55 with a width at it widest point of 80 cm.
