Enough with the Pantone Kitsch Already

Pantone Mugs

This has gotten out of hand. Yeah, we posted a few of these items earlier this month so we’re guilty as well but designers spend enough time looking at swatchbooks throughout the day. We say when you leave the studio, leave the Pantone colors behind too.

Pantime Clock:
O.K. This is a clever idea, but this will probably get old after about a week.

I know this is just a concept piece, but it’s a tad dorky – don’t ya think?

Pantone Buttons:
This is by far the worst of the bunch. I don’t even know what to say about this one. A failed attempt at a “get rich quick” scheme perhaps?

Pantone Messenger Bags:
Pantone Messenger Bags with the bloody swatch number? Come on.

Pantone Chairs:
Alright, this may work for the office so we’ll let this slide – especially since it’s a limited edition piece.

Pantone Notepads:
Here we go with the numbers again.

Pantone Eyewear:
If your still down with the “kitsch,” these items will be up for grabs in the near future.

  5. These are great for those who prefer to use nicotine, but do not want to smoke cigarettes. I use it as an alternative, and were it to be taken away I would go back to smoking cigarettes. Harm reduction is key to prevent the many smoking related deaths and illnesses across the globe. I hope these are here to stay!
