Ciba: Xymara Design Award
This year’s winner of Ciba’s Xymara Design Award goes to Soner Demirel for his "xys Chair". Soner, who is studying at Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Istanbul, Turkey, created the chair using Ciba Xymara Metasheen mirror-effect pigments. According to the company, his “xys Chair” combines simplicity and suitability in a harmonious marriage of functionality with form.
Ciba invited young students to create designs using the Ciba Xymara range of effects, taking into consideration sustainability issues such as safe disposal and recycling.
The Award was presented at a ceremony at 100% Design in London, at which designer Tom Dixon was the keynote speaker.
