HIMACS a huge success at Milan Design Week 2014

HIMACS a huge success at Milan Design Week 2014! Discover the other locations.

Milan Design Week was yet another opportunity for HIMACS to stamp its influence and to prove its place as the most versatile hi-tech material on the market, adapting to an endless variety of projects.

The next generation acrylic stone brought to life Karim Rashid's visionary concepts in his Sparkle Krib design, an evocative installation at the Temporary Museum for New Design in collaboration with LX Electronics.

This dream-like, animated living space literally lit up the Tortona circuit of the fringe show. The stunning installation gives us a fresh angle on modern living environments, breaking down architectural barriers and incorporating furniture into a continuous structure with an organic feel and high visual impact.

HIMACS was also the perfect material for a project in a more strictly technical vein. It formed part of Poliform Varenna's AdaptLiving kitchen prototype, designed by Politecnic of Milan, to be used by people with limited mobility.

The next generation acrylic stone also featured in a range of other designs at the 2014 main and fringe shows: furniture, with the Balance Lounge Chair by Pure Design; high technology instruments, with Cobra by Archi(Struc)tures DesLAB, bathroom accessories with the EllenbergerDesign project and Rifra's items Box, Smooth, Bowl and Adam lamp and kitchens with the decorative Zen hood for Novy, the Mod.Progetto Sistema by Ar-Tre and the Volare system by Aran Cucine.

This year, as never before, HIMACS showed that it can be adapted to any idea and can be moulded to create the most ambitious projects. It proved that it really is capable of bringing ideas to life.
