Ciba introduces award for designers
Surfaces provide an opportunity to create a personality, new experiences and scenarios. Inject some drama and flair into everyday life, open a door to the past, or create an illusion that gradually changes into something else. Surfaces are also about messages – of contrasts, discovery, interaction and unexpected turns that have an impact on all the senses. Can perceptions change with proximity or lighting conditions, acoustics and texture?
A surface is by definition an exterior, the face that an object or being presents to the world. There can unfortunately be negative connotations – surfaces are connected with shallowness and the notion that beauty is skin-deep – but it would be a mistake to dismiss them as trivial. Imagine having to navigate through a world without surfaces as first point of reference. A surface is a projection screen for emotions and the state of things in general.
The Ciba® XYMARA™ range of special effects pigments creates endless possibilities for intriguing and emotional surfaces. We would like to invite you to create products in three categories that use pigments from the Ciba® XYMARA™ range. Ciba is an environmentally responsible company and your design must consider sustainability issues such as safe disposal and recycling. More here.
