Pantone has opened a temporary pop-up cafe on Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The Monaco Restaurant Group is behind the colorful cafe that serves color-coded coffee, croissants, Italian sodas, sandwiches, foccacia, snacks and homemade ice cream throughout the day.
Pop-Up Pantone Cafe
A vibrant bistro influenced by the global color matching system created by Lawrence Herbert in 1963, the cafe offers food and drink, each responding to a matching hue. An eclair is paired with a rich, chocolate brown packaging; water bottles bear a soft blue label; and a spritz is served in a vibrant orange vessel.
The walk-up cafe pays homage to the iconic Pantone Matching System with everything from the menu, decor and food being assigned the Pantone numerical codes and swatches. In addition to the menu items, the saturated tones are applied to folding chairs, food trays, napkins, and the façade of the pop-up restaurant, forming a visual and vibrant experience for visitors to the coastline’s bustling Grimaldi Forum.
