Award-winning Innovations for Upholstered Surfaces and Furniture Films

The skai® Design Lab has been awarded the German Design Award 2020 in the “Web” category. Our online tool allows customers to select and customize digital print designs for their projects. The jury based its decision on the view that the tool offers an impressive diversity of straightforward design options, while the application is incredibly easy and fun to use. You simply have to try it out for yourself, say the experts.

Sustained seating pleasure

Already a twofold award-winner: the newly developed skai® Pureto EN. After obtaining the Interzum Award: Intelligent Material & Design 2019 for high product quality, it is now also one of the winners of the Iconic Awards 2020: Innovative Interior in the Textiles category. The material made from polyurethane is an alternative to conventional synthetic upholstery fabrics. It is free of PVC and is produced in Germany using an innovative water-based and resource-saving PUR system. It is particularly suitable for office, hotel and gastronomy seating furniture, or for public buildings.

Coordinated duo for greater homeliness

The duo of ­­­skai® Torino FLS and skai® Topana FLS has also been awarded the Iconic Award 2020: Innovative Interior in the Textiles category. The color and texture combination is fully on trend and provides for greater individuality and homeliness. Our designers have matched the subtle color shades so as to combine textile looks with fine leather grains. This means that the two materials enhance any room, whether as wall coverings or on seating furniture.

Three further awards

Three further Continental furniture surfaces also garnered prizes at the Iconic Awards 2020, bestowed by the German Design Council: skai® NatureFeel with a 3-D synchronization structure that replicates the uniqueness and perfection of natural surface finishes with the greatest authenticity. The nano-embossed skai® colore classico ULTRA surface has a fine-blasted appearance and impresses particularly in its dark shades. skai® colore magic METALSPIN convinced the jury with its iridescent polished finish.
