June 24, 2010 – Solutia has announced the jury members for the first annual Solutia World of Color Awards: Inspired by Vanceva.   The international competition pays tribute to architects, interior designers, furniture designers and other industry professionals who have creatively used Vanceva colour interlayers for laminated glass in their work.
 
Projects will be judged by an international jury of celebrated industry professionals in both the architectural, interior design and colour marketing industries.   They include Shashi Caan, founder of the  Shashi Caan Collective in New York City and the United Kingdom;  Fermín Vázquez, founder of  b720 Arquitectos in Barcelona and Madrid, Spain;  Andrew Moor, principal of Andrew Moor Associates in London and author of The Colour of Architecture; Jeeyong An, principal of GinsengChicken Architecture, a New York office for progressive architecture; and Denise Turner, international colorist and founder of Color Turners in California.
 
“Our jury represents a diverse spectrum of design innovation and expertise in their chosen fields,” said Aimee Davis, global marketing communications manager at Solutia. “Each of these individuals are at the top of their professions and are well-respected for their work with colour and glass. We are honored to have them lend their time and talents; they are an incredible asset to this competition.”
 
The Vanceva Color System by Saflex incorporates colour into glass and glazing systems using tinted interlayers which are laminated in between two pieces of glass.  A palette of 15 colours can be combined in up to four layers to produce more than 3,000 transparent, translucent and opaque glass colours. The company says this gives designers unparalleled flexibility to create custom colours and one-of-a-kind aesthetics, and that Vanceva colour interlayers also offer all the benefits of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers for laminated safety glass, including security, solar, sound insulation and UV protection.
 
The Solutia World of Color Awards competition is an international recognition program open to all industry professionals. All entries must include liberal use of Vanceva colour interlayer products and must have been completed between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2009.

The site is also a portal for discussions and information on the subject of colour in architecture and design. There are no entry fees, and multiple entries will be accepted.
