Eye-catching façade for Milan Design Week
Qbiss by trimo using Corus Colorcoat Prisma® was instrumental in the successful delivery of The Dolls House – a striking architectural installation created by Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc that greeted visitors as they entered the Superstudio Piu at Milan Design Week.
Forming part of the exhibition, I Will Buy the Flowers Myself, the concept behind The Dolls House innovative design, with its chimney and pearlescent smoke, was to represent the difference between the world of objects and the world of forms encapsulated in the image of a house. Key to the successful delivery of Nika Zupanc’s design was the need to achieve a finished structure whose ‘chic and elegant surface [used] deep colour [to create an] almost 3D effect.’
The design demonstrates Qbiss by trimo’s new modular façade system which defines the standard for the modern building envelope; a complete modular facade system combining all the very highest aesthetics together with the form and function demanded by today’s architects and designers. This makes it a perfect system to use Corus Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel.
Erhan Ozdemir from Corus Colors comments: “Corus Colors is committed to enabling cutting-edge contemporary architecture through enhanced understanding of materials, so we were delighted to be involved in The Dolls House which is a fantastic showcase for how the innovative use of steel can play a fundamental role in the delivery of innovative modern design.”
Erhan continues: “The use of colour and form were key to the success of this conceptual architectural installation due to the dramatic impact required for the final appearance of the building. Colorcoat Prisma® is a high-performance pre-finished steel with superior aesthetic appeal and, as such, was the ideal choice for the eye-catching architectural installation as it enabled the designer to deliver a colour solution that would realise the minimalistic and avant-garde specifications of the design brief whilst also ensuring the structure’s visual appeal. In addition, it provides optimised Galvalloy® metallic substrate for ultimate corrosion resistance
Colorcoat Prisma® is available in wide range of colours and specifiers can also take advantage of a bespoke colour matching service to create a tailored look for any building. A robust and durable product that provides excellent durability. Furthermore it provides outstanding colour and gloss retention fully backed up with the comprehensive Confidex® Guarantee of up to 25 years to provide total peace of mind.
