Holland & Sherry’s ‘Duet’ named most attractive Trevira CS collection at Munich Fabric Spring

The Munich Fabric Spring (‘Münchner Stoff Frühling’, MSF), an annual event celebrating interior design and textiles, took place this year from 16-19 March, with Trevira CS® as one of its sponsors. At the event, the public accolade for most attractive CS collection went to velour product ‘Duet’ by British editor Holland & Sherry. Congratulations!

For the third year in a row, visitors to the MSF could cast their vote on which of the CS collections shown they preferred. They were asked to name their favourite CS collection by filling in a card, which they then posted in one of the Trevira CS ‘letterboxes’ placed in each of the MSF showrooms.

The flame-retardant Duet, a stylish upholstery fabric, turned out to be the public’s top choice. The 100 % Trevira CS® velvet material is available in a wide range of colours, from light grey, red and violet to dark blue and black.

A velour was also the winner of last year’s Trevira CS competition, showing that high quality Trevira CS articles are very much ready for the market and its ongoing trend towards the use of velvets.

The draw was entered by a large number of people, with one lucky participant winning a trip to Florence for two, worth 2500 Euros. We congratulate the interior design firm ‘Raum und Form’ in Pfaffenhofen!

Gil Stevens, EDANA’s External Relations & Sustainability Director, presented the award to Alexis Laurent from DTU Denmark on behalf of Mr. Hauschild who was unfortunately unable to attend. In the acceptance speech, tribute was paid to the key role of SETAC for their key role in “offering a forum for scientific discussions with colleagues from around the world at conferences and in many scientific task forces over the years”. Mr Hauschild also gave special thanks to the Technical University of Denmark and his colleagues in the Division for Quantitative Sustainability Assessment.

Gil Stevens said the award was an honour to grant concluding that “SETAC promotes fundamental understanding and knowledge of the science and technologies contributing to the analysis and solution of environmental challenges. EDANA are greatly honoured in being allowed to recognise such professional commitment to research and development in this field. Well done Michael!”
