In4nite is a project combining ideas and creativity of designers of any discipline with the technical textiles from Low & Bonar to provide relevant design solutions extrapolating the aesthetical and functional properties of Colback Technology. The designers use their knowledge to create a variety of fascinating designs and products based on the technical textiles, Colback and Enka, supported by the technical  know-how of Low & Bonar.

Colback is mostly used for backing of carpets for the flooring industry (ie: broadlooms, control mats) and automotive (car carpets, molding carpets), but also as wallcovering (mainly in Asia market). Enka is used in the building and civil engineering industries. Please, check our website to get further insights about our technologies.

 

 

The first edition of In4nite and its subsequent presentation at the Dutch Design Week, marks the very birth of our ideation platform. In this edition, each of the designers have already had their share in this field of research; think about the exploration of Colback’s acoustic qualities; but also that of its strength, lightness and transparency. These fall in line with the functionalities that we’re interested in, as there is an added value to functional significance. For the forthcoming edition, we’d like to see the diverse qualities of our technologies highlighted in the final designs.

With In4nite II, we want to pay more attention to the functionality of the material.  We’d like to build upon the successes that were achieved last year, which is why we’ve included several of last year’s participants. In addition to these talented designers, we especially wanted to introduce a larger variety of expertise. This year there will be a team of product designers, interaction designers, graphic designers, architects and industrial designers.  Industrial design combines the aesthetic choices of design with technical ingenuity; We’re very pleased that we’ve managed to add these features to our team, which comprises a broad scope of designers.

 


 

 


 

Dutch Design Week 2018

  In4nite II



In4nite II continued to amaze by providing a glimpse of what innovative cross over between technology and design can accomplish. For example, the landscape of Colback by Rick Tegelaar,  shoes of Colback by Joris de Groot and ultrasonic welded Colfront by Daphna Laurens.

With the in4nite II project Low& Bonar continued collaboration with a group of talented product designers, graphic designers and architects to explore how performance materials can provide exciting new functional solutions with new aesthetic promise. 

The composition of this years’ group of designers and public presentation at the Dutch Design Week 2018, comprised a wide scope of distinct fields of expertise and designs;  product design, interaction design, graphic design, as well as industrial design. The driving force for the project is definitely the quality of the designs; these designs denote the results of a long and complex process.
