Innovation Meets Inspiration – 2020 Global Gallery Incentive Contest Winner Announced

Innovation by fabricators, architects and visionaries in the design field is what inspires the team at Aristech Surfaces. That’s why we created a quarterly and annual incentive-based application submission program for our global sales and distribution teams to show us their ‘best’ applications with our full portfolio of surfacing solutions.

This year, we were thrilled to announce that the team of Lee Shephard, Regional Sales Director Solid Surface (Aristech Surfaces Europe), Distributor James Latham and specifically Joe Sepede, Solid Surface Product Manager, James Latham (U.K.)and Fabricator Breakout Interiors – UK Ltd. who used our STUDIO Collection® architectural resin Ocean Breeze 8700, is the winner of 2020 our Global Gallery Incentive contest!

The stunning, handcrafted application of a custom fabricated, light infused shower pan and in-set shower accessories caught the judges attention for the win. This notable color, Ocean Breeze 8700, within the STUDIO Collection® palette boasts cool hues, fluid movement and a unique ocean-inspired visual texture, to assist in the creation of the boldest, handcrafted design decor. This deep, vivid blue/green material was used to fabricate not only the full shower pan, but customized soap trays/shelves to bring the full wrap-around feel to this unique space. This beautiful installation for a private residence can be admired from both inside the shower, as well as while lounging in the bathtub. Other angles of the project show how the back-lighting livens up the room and truly brings this installation into another spectrum.

Congratulations to the winning team trio on the grand prize for 2020, for this stunning and unique application with none other, than STUDIO Collection® Ocean Breeze!

Honorable Mention this year is awarded to Upper Canada Forest Products submission by Shelley Adams, Architect and Design Specification Rep with Upper Canada Forest Products, of a unique private residence, utilizing wide sheet AVONITE® Super White on the kitchen island countertop and bathroom counter with matching integrated sinks. This project was in collaboration with Susan Rayer, Commercial Business Manager, who knew this project was truly special from the start. Yet another stunning application for our AVONITE® 100% acrylic solid surface, and one that will be enjoyed by this private owner for years to come.

Special thanks to all the entries, for this 2020 year. We are looking forward to upping the ante this year, on the inspiring application gallery submission program. More details to come for 2021. Congratulations!
