Solutia Announces World of Color Awards Program
May 10, 2010
Solutia Inc., manufacturer of the Vanceva Color System by Saflex®,
announced its inaugural "World of Color AwardsSM Inspired
by Vanceva®." The new international design awards program
is designed to honor architects, interior designers, glass fabricators,
furniture designers, glazing engineers and other industry professionals
for their innovative design use of colored laminated safety glass
in building design and interior spaces. Entries will be accepted
online beginning June 14, 2010 at www.worldofcolorawards.com.
"Glass is the portal through which we experience light in the
built environment. Adding color to that glass, whether it is in
exterior glazing, interior partitions, furniture or art, elevates
the experience of light," says Julie Schimmelpenningh, global
architectural applications manager for Solutia. "This competition
seeks to honor architects, designers and glazing professionals who
use color to enhance the built environment and inspire occupants."
Entries will be judged by a jury of architectural and color marketing
professionals. The architectural and design community will also
be able to cast their votes for their favorite projects online.
The glass fabricator who supplied the laminated glass for each of
the winning projects will also be recognized on the program website,
in press releases and all competition communications.
The World of Color Awards competition is an international recognition
program open to all industry professionals. All entries must include
liberal use of Vanceva color interlayer products and must have been
