At imm cologne 2014 LG Hausys introduced the latest colours and innovations of its HI-MACS acrylic stone, including the new Sparkle collection by gifted designer Karim Rashid. Five vibrant new colours from the solid surface are fully available for 2014. Strong tones and a distinctive glittering effect like a distant galaxy are the unique hallmarks of the new colours, which are about to give designers new dimensions with which to imagine and work.
Some of the Sparkle colours are bold and statement-like, such as Key Lime and Kandy Pink while more muted hues like Kreemy Grey, Kold Silver and the Kanada Violet offer a design juxtaposition. That allows designers to mix and contrast colours within a single work, as HI-MACS can be invisibly joined.
Because of its easy fabrication the material allows, according to the manufacturer, the most audacious creations. The Sparkle collection retains the key acrylic stone advantages of being highly durable, colour fast and impervious to moisture. The new colours are available in 12mm thickness.
The opportunities of the material inspired Karim Rashid to create a lounge chair for LG Hausys using even this material. “Through the intersection of multiple curved surfaces, I created an elegant lounge chair composed of various colours of my sparkle collection that embodies the Solid Surface characteristics of strength and fluidness, versatility, with dynamic lines,” the designer explains his work.
