Decolan, the Swiss based leading supplier of laminates and decorative surfaces with more than 20 years of experience in this business, was honored with an important award during the last “NAS Design Partnership Awards” ceremony, which took place in London end of 2016.
The PRODUCT OF THE YEAR award is given to the most impressive product in the industry. This year the judges were looking for innovation as well as practicality and found in Decolan’s DECOFLEX3D the best product in its category, thanks to its stunning aesthetic impact and incredible light weight.
Being a thermoplastic laminate that can be designed into anything the client needs, makes DECOFLEX3D the ideal solution to dramatically change the interior design of restaurants, bars, shops and any kind of wall or ceiling that need to be restructured or space to be refitted.
DECOFLEX3D gets heated up and then molded into a set design chosen or a custom-made 3D structure that the client has specifically requested, and it can also be customized with any colour. These panels are suitable for walls, ceilings, backsplashes, furniture, display fixture, and many other interior applications. Hundreds of designs and colour combinations are possible and all of them have impact, chemical, abrasion, U.V., stain and fire properties.
