Trends and Designs distinguish us. And international juries distinguish us.
As experts in creative design and demanding surface design, we are trendsetters in the scene: across industries and national borders, in product development as well as presentation and communication in equal measure. And we aren’t the only ones who think that’s good – as evidenced by our numerous awards.
New variety for decorative papers
‘The Edition Co-Equal combines the characteristic optics of various materials into one new, fascinating look.’
(Jury of the German Design Awards)
‘The technically sophisticated design of the Edition Co-Equal is geared towards variety. It also stands out due to its impressive appearance.’
(Jury of the Red Dot Design Awards)
The Edition Co-Equal combines different patterns into new surface designs for decorative papers: traditional herringbone, Portuguese tiles or ethnic patters liaise with wood, stone or fantasy decors. This combination variety is made possible thanks to modern embossing cylinders which enable us to realise individual customer wishes.
Milestone in edge design
‘One-of-a-kind printing enables seamless edge design – panel and edge from one casting.’
(Jury of the pro-K awards)
The premium high-gloss worktop edges are impressive thanks to their true-to-scale print images and premium high-gloss finish. The newly developed DIGITAL EDGE technology makes it possible for the first time to also recreate custom motifs (logos, photos, lettering, graphic design) on thermoplastic edge bands.
Interzum 2017 2017 stand
„ONE IN MOTION“
‘Our goal with the impressive booth architecture is to enable visitors to experience our diverse portfolio of expertise as well as put the strength of SURTECO on display. Visitors are invited to take inspiration from a stroll between five-metre-tall trees.’
(Alexandra Jung, SURTECO interzum project manager)
Award: German Design Award, A’Design Award
550 square metres of inspiration: SURTECO presented itself with impressive architecture at interzum 2017, with the goal of making the variety of expertise of the surface specialist tangible as well as inspiring visitors. Trees over five metres tall impressively displaying the product portfolio (new designs, highlights of decor combinations, technical innovations) towered over visitors in the room. In particular the presentation of the edges with their undulating 3D look caught a lot of attention.
‘A real eye-catcher. They can be used to deftly upgrade furniture edges.’
(Explanation of the pro-K award jury)
3D Space Wave combines extraordinary design with simple further processing. Thanks to the co-extrusion of the acrylic and the integrated undulated embossing achieves an extraordinary depth effect. This optical effect is a genuine innovation for chipboard finishes, which otherwise are only produced from coloured thermoplastics.
New process brings compromise
‘The product idea came from employees in the digital printing department and was born out of our idea management system. So I am extremely pleased, because the performance of the employees has thus also been honoured.’
(Jens Meyer zu Drewer, head of product management)
Award: pro-K award – explanation of the jury: ‘Elegant implementation of a clear edge.’
Two in one: Döllken digital printing technology makes it possible. Finally two different decors can be printed at the same time on the edge – in top quality, of course. With Döllken DIGITAL EDGE CORE DESIGN, the decor of the niche rear wall or the kitchen fronts, for example, can be integrated into the worktop as the core. The worktop unites with the entire kitchen, resulting in a harmonious environment.
