ASB MAGAZINE: Globe, announced the second drop of its limited edition box sets of Pantone’s Colour Of The Year series. The first box set series sold out faster than expected and gained solid media attention, including featuring in Design Milk and HypeBeast.


For 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions across fashion and furnishings, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design. As creatives we speak the language of colour and Pantone is our dictionary. In tribute, we offer fellow design and colour enthusiasts the ability to skate or collect a piece of colour trend history.


For both limited edition series, each colour was thoughtfully considered and selected by the design team at Globe from the Pantone Colour Of The Year archives. Each deck is a numbered edition of 200, dipped in one of the Pantone Colours Of The Year from the past two decades.


All decks are;

  • 8.25” wide x 32” tall
  • Made from Canadian maple
  • Paint dipped in the official Pantone Colour of the Year
  • Engraved with Colour name and Pantone number
  • Laser-etched with colour story and official collaboration information, including limited-edition individualized numbering on each top


The 2nd box set, 2000 – 2010, features a warm muted tone palette comprised of these 5 individual decks;

  • 2010 Turquoise 15-5519
  • 2009 Mimosa 14-0848
  • 2006 Sand Dollar 13-1106
  • 2002 True Red 19-1664
  • 2000 Cerulean Blue 15-4020
