Competing for the Good Design Award
As many as two products from Pfleiderer were nominated for participation in the Good Design competition this year. Competing for this prestigious award of the Institute of Industrial Design are the Duropal SolidColor Xtreme HPL laminate and the design collection of three exceptional decors – F73034 Reed Blue, F73051 Texwood White and F76069 Houndstooth Grey.
The mere fact of qualifying the products from Pfleiderer for participation in the competition of the Institute of Industrial Design is a huge distinction because only solutions identified by specialists as fulfilling the requirements of good design are allowed to participate in the competition.
What qualities did experts of the Institute of Industrial Design see in the solutions from Pfleiderer?
The Duropal SolidColor Xtreme laminate enchants with its absolutely matt, anti-reflective surface. Warm and “soft”, it practically begs to be touched. And that refers to the entire surface of pieces of furniture or fittings because the perfect matching of the core colour in Duropal SolidColor XTreme allowed for a monochrome design without visible edges and gaps – even the edges. Moreover, this solution provides a number of functional benefits. It is durable, easy to clean and guarantees exceptional resistance to greasy stains and fingerprints (Anti-Finger-Print property).
It is worth noting that the laminate from Pfleiderer has already received a number of awards and distinctions, such as Iconic Award 2016, German Design Award 2016, pro-K Award, Diament Meblarstwa [Diamond of the Furniture Industry] 2016, Interzum Award 2017 and Red Dot Award 2017.
Spectacle of ideas
On the other hand, the Pfleiderer Design Collection is the result of a combination of creativity, craftsmanship and the highest quality. The three decors from the Pink House world will surely be appreciated by all the people seeking new, original solutions.
Texwood White (F73051) is a successful combination of the pattern of wood and textiles – of classics and creativity. Stripe wood grain with incisions on rings, together with the fine mesh structure, make for a unique and original effect. The moderate interplay of colours and high precision turned out to be a recipe for intriguing elegance.
The characteristic background of the Reed Blue (F73034) with randomly distributed color intensity is an option for the bold. The visible contrast between the background and the scratch lines is further emphasised by the clear graphic structure, which is not softened even by the use of delicate pastel colours.
Houndstooth Grey (F76069), on the other hand, is a classic textile pattern combined with an original mesh structure. Elegant and raw, it is perfect for furniture fronts, house fittings and public facilities.
Recognition of the best
The purpose of the “Good Design” competition, organised by the Institute of Industrial Design since 1993, is to distinguish products and services characterised by high-quality design and support their manufacturers and distributors. Last year, which turned out to be a record year in terms of scale of competition, researchers from the Institute of Industrial Design found as many as 1,694 products and services, of which 222 products and services participated in the competition.
