Formica Group Europe, manufacturer of interior surfacing solutions and the original inventor of Formica® laminate, launches a pan-European design competition and calls design students in the UK to enter and submit their concept.
Students from Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and UK are invited to explore the world of colour and forms, and re-invent the notion of light through the use of Formica® laminate. They will be challenged to look differently at the interpretation of lighting hardware, fixtures and applications for interior use, while specifying some of the 600 versatile decorative laminate solutions offered in the new Formica® Collection.
This year, the international jury panel will consist of the American designer, art director and Pentagram partner Abbott Miller, the Swedish architect, designer and founder of Claesson Koivisto Rune (CKR) Eero Koivisto, and both Formica Group in-house designers Renee Hytry Derrington and Eva Hoernisch.
