HI-MACS Structura® wins the Archiproducts Design Award 2017
The second edition of the Archiproducts Design Awards, a competition organised by one of the world’s leading platforms for architecture and design, has just ended, and once again awards were made for the most innovative ideas in 14 different product categories. The winning projects were selected from among more than 600 entries from over 15 countries worldwide by an authoritative international jury made up of 40 members and including Mario Bellini, Ben Van Berkel, Snøhetta and i29 Interior Architects.
The sole winner in the solid surface category, HI-MACS Structura®, is a surface material that is unique regarding its fully customisable 3D properties, which take it beyond the potentially infinite design possibilities of natural acrylic stone. Further, once installed, sheets of HI-MACS Structura® can be worked so as to eliminate visible joins, resulting in flowing, continuous surfaces with great visual impact.
The jury was struck by the unique flexibility of the material, which, when combined with its ease of use (for simple structures, ordinary woodworking tools are all that is required) and its high-performance qualities, make it an ideal medium for the most ambitious architectural projects.
HI-MACS Structura®, which can easily be used on internal and external walls, on facades and in humid environments (showers, baths, spas, etc.), is available in 10 different shades and as many standard textures, mimicking the modelling effect of the wind (Air Stream), the movement of sand (Dunes) or the asymmetric patterns of cobblestones (Zen), or replicating different compositions, whether or not geometric, with dots in relief (Dots), gridlines (Laser), rhombuses (Fabric), and many more forms besides.
HI-MACS®. Because Quality Wins.
