Design Prize Switzerland 2015/2016 of the category textile goes to Création Baumann.
Design Prize Switzerland awards prizes for outstanding achievements in all design disciplines relevant to industry. The Metal base collection convinced the jury and got awarded in the category “Textile”.
Comments by the jury:
With Metal Base, Création Baumann has once again come up with a textile collection which combines innovative production technology with aesthetic added value. The development of the fabrics, which make an almost alchemical impression, was in response to a need resulting from contemporary architecture with its preference for glass façades. The collection uses the traditional advantages of textiles – protection against direct sunlight, and sound absorption – and adds yet another: the reflection of the light falling on the fabric, so as to reduce heat input. With their aesthetic qualities, Metal Base textiles can be used equally well in a domestic setting, in public spaces or in the office.
