Schoeller®-dynatec Fabric Receives Design Plus Award

Switzerland-based Schoeller Technologies AG recently won a Design Plus Award for its schoeller®-dynatec fabric. The Design Plus competition -- organized by Germany-based Messe Frankfurt and the German Design Council (Rat für Formgebung) -- gave awards to 36 products and materials featuring a combination of innovative materials, successful design and intelligent functionality. The awards were presented during the Materials Vision trade fair, held June 16-18 in Frankfurt.

Schoeller-dynatec is a durable, high-tensile fabric featuring a glow-in-the dark-effect. The fabric has a filigree, 3-D mesh structure with a special yarn woven into it that when exposed to light, absorbs and then emits the light into the dark, becoming visible. The fabric is used in interior design products such as office chairs, room dividers and interiors; as well as in safety-related applications such as shoes or for work protection. Schoeller-dynatec is bluesign® approved.
