Think Forward:Competition for innovative use of self-adhesive textile
Jun '08
In several years of research and development work, Création Baumann developed a silicon-coated self-adhesive textile that can be attached directly to glass and removed again without leaving any residues: GECKO - a world novelty ensuring privacy and glare protection and an effective room design tool. This innovative, novel adhesive textile has already won numerous prizes, i.e. The Swiss Textile Design Award, the AIT Textile and Object Innovation Prize as well as the Interior Innovation Award Cologne for products of high architectural quality, and the Red Dot Design Award for outstanding design quality.

After the successful market introduction of GECKO, Création Baumann has now decided to invite contributions for the competition “GECKO: Think Forward”. Within the scope of this competition, projects involving the exemplary and innovative use of GECKO are to be submitted to Création Baumann for appraisal.

On the one hand, we are interested in solutions focusing on the functional aspects of the product; on the other, we are interested in projects based on a particularly creative use of the product. Architects, planers, civil engineers, and interior architects with corresponding degrees in architecture, interior architecture, civil engineering, or urban planning are all eligible for participation.

The total prize money amounts to EURO 22,500.00. The best projects in the three categories Functionality, Innovation, and Aesthetics, will be chosen and granted awards. An expert panel of five jurors will assess the projects to be submitted to Création Baumann by March 31, 2009. The festive award ceremony will be held in the early summer of 2009.

Création Baumann is renowned for high quality textiles for interior design. Thanks to our in-house design studio and our own production facilities, unconventional creations are possible.
