RED DOT DESIGN AWARD WINNER
Pythagoras joins geometry and ornamentation into a coherent wood tile system. Three basic geometrical shapes and different types of wood can be combined in mathematically related tile sizes to create unique surface landscapes.
Surface designs that were previously reserved for highly individual parquet, inlay and mosaic laying art, receive an industrial and therefore economical product base by Pythagoras for the first time, including the option of fire and sound insulation design as well as the creative printing of the wood tiles with INDEWO® digital printing. In addition to their universal use on floors, walls and ceilings, the wooden tiles impress with their above-average width of 100 cm – completely new possibilities are opened up to interior and room visionaries.
The triangle brings dynamic potential to interior and room design. Crystalline structures, broken glass, nets and much more – there are practically no limits to the design messages and creative expressions.
Balance, symmetry, calmness – the square marks the balancing, tempering element in the room ornamentation. Symmetrical design approaches allow a textile appearance, and even with a random arrangement, the clear line always remains dominant.
The essential basic form of mosaic laying art, the hexagon, opens up another essential dimension of design. Whether stars, chains or individual mosaic patterns – the optical options in the room, also and especially with regard to the area of 3-D effects, potentiate.
From the 22 June 2020, europlac Pythagoras has gained entrance into the “Design on Stage” exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, which presents all of the award-winning products. This turns the house into a hotspot for top-class industrial design. From this day onwards, the winning product from europlac and designer Katrin de Louw will also be presented in the online exhibition on the Red Dot website. The Red Dot Design Yearbook 2020/2021 will be published in July 2020.
