Solutia International Design Awards to Recognize Innovative Work in Glass Design

Marking an industry first, the Laminated Glazing Interlayers division of Solutia Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: SOLUQ-OB) will bring the design talents of both architects and automotive designers under one competition.

The Solutia International Design Awards, now in its seventh year, is a global competition that pays tribute to architects, interior designers, automotive designers and laminators who have used laminated glass liberally in their design.Entries are now being accepted for the awards, which will recognize projects that demonstrate innovative uses of any of Solutia's architectural glazing products, which include Vanceva(TM) and Saflex(R) laminated glass interlayers and KeepSafe(R) brand families. This year, the program will also recognize automotive designers and engineers for the use of laminated glazing in automobiles. "Our laminated glass products have been used in amazing ways by automotive designers, as well as building designers," says Jay Pyper, North American market development director for Solutia. "We are proud to be able to recognize that dynamic group of individuals as well."

The projects will be judged by an international jury of celebrated industry professionals in both the architectural and automotive industries. This year's winners will receive an original work of art by noted American glass artist Laurel Fyfe. Last year's winners spanned the globe and represented architectural and interior work, as well as an artistic installation.
