As a world-leading supplier of acrylic products and material solutions, Lucite International (LI) is committed to working with our partners across Europe to help shape the future in an inspiring, sustainable and responsible way.

As part of this commitment, we’re continuing to focus on the Turkish design community to drive innovation and explore potential for acrylic with the return of our ‘Shaping the future’ Acrylic Design Awards.

Our aim is to stimulate design innovation by challenging students in design and architecture faculties to consider how acrylic can be used to create products and experiences that will contribute to a more sustainable future, in line with our KAITEKI values.

Building on the success of 2019’s program, LI is once again teaming up with Turkish distributor, Ak-tas and leading Turkish specialist design communications company, MIMARSIV.

Throughout October and November, we’re embarking on a roadshow to present the challenge to students at Turkey’s top universities, encouraging more of the creativity and ingenuity that impressed and excited us so much the first time.

Carol White, LI’s Marketing Manager for EMEA Monomers, says:

“We are delighted that the Acrylic Design Awards competition is returning after the phenomenal success of last year. We were astounded by both the quantity and quality of the entries we received and, by returning to Turkey, we know we can expect a wide range of inspirational and revolutionary ideas as the student design community there is clearly talented and innovative in their approach. Through our collaboration with Ak-tas we can work closely with partners on the ground to increase engagement with the Awards, reaffirming our commitment to the Turkish market and helping customers grow their businesses.”
