German Design Award 2016 für skai® Tokio EN

The German Design Award 2016 has been awarded to something truly innovative. The skai® Tokio EN uses a highly precise laser engraving method to achieve a ground look with impeccable detail. Precision on a nanoscale leads to a deceptively realistic and non-patterned result. Lines are etched in opposing directions onto the surface, meeting at the diagonal and thus lending the material a vibrant look that is highly dynamic. The metallic colors of the surface yield a look of iridescence as the light refraction varies to fascinating effect, depending on the perspective. This unique material started the year with a bang, receiving the Interior Innovation Award 2015 – Selection.
