Very Peri product designs that celebrate Pantone’s color of the year 2022!


Pantone recently announced that its Color of the Year 2022 is a shade of blue! Called Very Peri and described as ‘periwinkle blue’, the intriguing color, to be honest, almost looks like purple, instead of blue! “PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a cheerful, cheerful demeanor and a dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. In an ode to the all-new Pantone color, we’ve curated a collection of product designs that perfectly capture this mesmerizing shade of purple! From a MagSafe iStorage that adds a snap-in physical reader to increase storage on your phone to Black Panther-inspired sneakers, these innovative products are truly a periwinkle purple!

1. iStorage

Designer Abdelrahman Shaapan has an idea – Magsafe Storage. Designed to look like Apple’s new MagSafe battery (although Abdel came up with this design in May), the iStorage is a nifty wireless reader that lets you add extra storage to your phone in a snap. eye. How would iStorage even work in theory? Obviously, the MagSafe is only designed to hook accessories to the iPhone and chargers to the wireless charging coil. How would iStorage even transfer data? Well, even though Abdelrahman’s iStorage is just a fan-made concept, the real device could easily communicate with iPhone or any Apple device using AirDrop protocols. The snap-on feature would probably just be something handy, but I could easily imagine the iStorage as Apple’s own hard drive… something the company has never really worked on.

2. The pebble

Entitled The Pebble, these beautifully vivid and funky cutlery tools are a collaboration between Pentatonic and i am OTHER, a creative collective brought together by Pharrell, and are primarily made from recycled materials. The unusually vibrant cutlery set is named after the pebble-shaped container it sits in. The colorful container is made from recycled plastic from music CDs and perfectly houses a spoon, knife, fork, pair of chopsticks, and even a foldable straw. The plastic cutlery handles are made from recycled food packaging, while the cutlery itself is made of steel, with a highly durable anodized titanium coating for added strength and to give the cutlery their unmistakable vibrant purple hue. .

3. The GameCube controller

After waiting up to 2 years for Nintendo or another third-party modder to make GameCube joy-cons for the Switch, ShankMods decided to do it themselves after the release of Super Smash Bros. for the Switch, and the reissue of the GameCube controller. The design process is detailed, takes months, and combines a strong combination of catharsis and nostalgia. Shank decided to reuse an existing GameCube controller rather than a 3D printing controller. With the help of his friends, he then tore up the Switch Joy-Con and added the PCB and components to the GameCube case, using a few 3D printed components that would give the controllers the best of both worlds. Shank even managed to integrate the Z buttons and the four additional buttons from the original controllers into his mod.

4. The Royal Oak “Black Panther” Flying Tourbillon

The Royal Oak “Black Panther” Flying Tourbillon looks a lot like something Shuri would prepare in his Wakandan lab. It uses the black, purple and silver color combination, while also using elements of texture and patterns that help it look like the room. The practical watch face looks a lot like the fang necklace seen around the neck of the Black Panther costume, while the display back uses a low-poly pattern quite similar to that seen in the illustrations from the film. The miniature figure on the front is incredibly realistic, with a laser-etched micro-texture on the costume, while the rest of the details are sculpted and hand painted to absolute perfection. This tourbillon, which makes a full rotation every minute, adds dynamism to the front of the watch.


Alexander Ordonez’s HYPERBOUNCE concept explores the use of the inherent “bounce” of the spheres by adding a series of balloons to the outsole. Not only do the balls help activate the pressure points in your foot, but they also add extra spring to your step as you walk, giving credit to the name, HYPERBOUNCE. The shoes come with what I like to call a Black Panther aesthetic, sporting a dark gray exterior with purple accents that glow on the inside, much like the Vibranium nanites in the Black Panther jumpsuit that glow when absorbed. ‘kinetic energy.

6. Mac Mini Concept

An interesting design concept from Qocept Graphics gives us a look at the Mac mini design for this year with some very subtle changes to the exterior and some major improvements to the interior. The size of it cuts down on the bulk a bit with dimensions of 13.5cm in width and length, and 3cm in thickness, making it the thinnest Mac to date. To provide additional protection to the aluminum body and a premium overall feel, the Mac mini concept features a 2cm thick acrylic casing. It also raises the machine slightly above the work surface for active heat dissipation.

7. BaoPham Design’s electric bike concept

This electric bike concept differentiates itself by merging a more rounded / not so edgy idea (well an idea not inspired by the Cybertruck) with the neon glow of the Tron universe we love. The electric bike concept designed by BaoPham Design is appealing for all the right reasons, and our favorite is the huge tires, offering such a large contact patch that it could dispense with the side stands and act as a self-driving bike. Imagine this two-wheeler in a sci-fi movie, as the protagonist drives it through the badlands to get revenge on the villainous scientist turned villain. Does this sound like a plot you like? The purple hues of the electric bike provide a mysterious element which is supported by the contrasting black and white sides of the electric bike.


Made from recycled aluminum coffee capsules, RE: CYCLE is the brainchild of Jimmy Östholm, a cycling entrepreneur. The aluminum in the coffee capsules is melted down and then used by Vélosophy to create the sturdy and rigid bike. The perfect marriage of durability and design, this is an example of recycling that has been upcycled. RE: CYCLE maintains the simple and iconic design philosophy of Vélosophy, a minimalist and elegant bike with crisp edges. However, there are some surprising touches! The vibrant purple frame was inspired by Arpeggio (the famous Nespresso coffee maker), while the bell was molded to resemble the shape of the much-loved coffee capsule.

9. Eclipse cabins

Inspired by a recent vision of a solar eclipse, Goodrich designed Eclipse Booths to provide a photo-visual experience for Instagram users to immerse their grids in the cosmos. Describing the cabins in his own words, Goodrich says: “Lit from behind, the round part of the cabin emits a soft, indirect light. The ceiling mirrors extend the graphic steps throughout the cabin interior to allude to… steps leading to eternity. As one of the stalls epitomizes the night sky with a darker color palette of twilight purple and midnight blue, a colder icy light emanates from behind the round plate – mimicking the Moon moving through Earth’s shadow. . The Eclipse Booth’s solar counterpart echoes the day we all spent cutting up old cereal boxes to observe the alignment of the Moon, Sun, and Earth. With peach-pink suede curtains and tangerine-yellow accents, the brighter of the two Eclipse cabins sheds a warmer golden light behind the round plaque.

10. Oyasai pencils

Did you know that more than 150 million pencils are thrown away each year in the United States by restaurants alone? Most pencils on the market are made from paraffin wax, which contains petroleum, an environmentally toxic chemical that makes the product non-biodegradable and harmful – now imagine a child putting that in their mouth. That’s where Oyasai pencils come in – these safe, organic pencils are made from rice bran oil and rice wax from rice bran. Both solid rice bran wax and liquid rice bran oil are byproducts of the rice polishing process, so these pencils are basically made from scraps. The pigment is also all natural, it comes from recycled plant materials like the outer leaves of vegetables which are usually discarded after harvest. However, Oyasai Crayons uses this food waste by collecting it and converting it into colors for crayons. In fact, these are the same pigments that are used for natural food coloring, which further shows that everything in the product is chemical free.
