FORMICA GROUP Continues To Support Designers Of The Future

Formica Group is delighted to announce the winners of the Design Event MART 2011 awards. For work in materials this year's "Most innovative use of Materials" award won by Hannah Wales was sponsored by Formica Group continuing their support of up and coming designers of the future.

MART is a curated selling exhibition showcasing the best in contemporary design from the North of England. Since it began in 2005 Design Event MART has been held at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead and has acted as a centre-point of the Design Event Festival. The event was established to support designers, especially those at the mid-early stages of their careers.

The materials award category was judged by Neil Sookee, Design Director for Europe and Asia, Formica Group. "Were proud to be sponsors and part of such a prestigious scheme for contemporary designers in the North of England. Formica Group and MART share a common goal - to encourage the next generation of creative talent. Supporting emerging design talent is an integral part of the history of Formica Group and we are pleased to be part of this initiative which builds on our previous work in this area." comments Neil.

Hannah Wales is a Furniture and Product Design graduate from Northumbria University. Her designs seek to discover concepts and ideas that are a result of hands on exploration of materials and processes. I find that innovation comes from fully understanding and appreciating the materials and processes being utilised," comments Hannah. "Silli Mugs were the result of an exploration into the ways in which surface finish can both visually and physically enhance an object. The intention was to explore beyond the fundamentals of finishing processes and material finishes, looking at the semantics of surface finishes.

Formica Group continues to innovate and lead the market in decorative laminates. In depth product development and advanced technology enables Formica Group to create exclusive products that inspire and excite the market. Creating beautiful and versatile surfaces for many diverse environments and applications it is the market leader and only manufacturer of High Pressure Laminate (HPL) in theUK, as well as being a manufacturer of a wide range of other surfacing materials.
