BASF, Sonae & CRYSTALLIZED join forces at design event

BASF, Sonae Indústria and CRYSTALLIZED - Swarovski Elements will host a unique display at the KAP Forum in Cologne during the PASSAGEN 2008 exhibition, which will be held from January 14 – 20, 2008, to coincide with the “imm cologne” furniture fair.

On the initiative of BASF, these three partners have put together an unusual display of combinations of materials that have never been seen before: brilliant colors by BASF incorporated into medium-density fiberboard TOPAN colour by Glunz, the German subsidiary of Sonae Indústria, and decorated with crystals by Swarovski.

The exhibition will be held at the KAP Forum for Architecture, Technology and Design, which is located on the Südkai in Cologne. The KAP Forum is an alliance of companies that are active in the fields of design and architecture, including BASF as a leading partner to the construction industry.

Special colorant formulations and production techniques have made it possible to manufacture medium-density fiberboard (MDF) that is through-colored, which gives it an intense coloration and improves its fastness to light. The versatile properties make the material particularly useful for shops and trade fairs, interior design and furniture design.

“Our colorants have made a great contribution to enhancing the quality of medium-density fiberboard and opening up new applications for this type of material. Combinations of MDF and CRYSTALLIZED - Swarovski Elements make it possible to create new, exclusive designs for furniture and fittings,” said Juliane Krüsemann, head of the project at BASF.
