Nomination New Material Award 2016
Colourfastness is considered a quality, but discolouration can never be prevented entirely. The dye inks in home printers and the pigmented inks on the professional market have different characteristics and, therefore, a different colourfastness. RENS experiments with a combination of various types of ink and paper, in order to control discolouration with the help of UV radiation. Discolouration becomes a quality. The objective is to produce a wallpaper that changes colour and/or composition over time through the influence of sunlight. CANON supports this project by RENS with knowledge and materials. During the Dutch Design Week from 22 till 30 October the eighteen designers who have been nominated for the New Material Award 2016 will be exhibited in the Kazerne in Eindhoven.
RENS (NL) with Neon Kunze (AUT). Ever since it first started, the Vienna Design Week has organized the Passionswege to bring together international and Austrian designers and Viennese production companies. Upon request by Vienna Design Week, RENS explored the potential of new colour shades and light effects. RENS immersed themselves into the technique at the 150-year-old family business Neonkunze – and conducted numerous tests using variable amounts of raw materials.
