STACtile, a new modular wall-cladding product recently launched for large feature walls, has won the wall-and-floor coverings category in this year’s Restaurant & Bar Product Design Awards, a contest that invites entries from product designers, manufacturers and distributors worldwide.
Simple in concept and elegant in execution, STACtile is being mass produced in a single form but offered in multiple colours and finishes. The tiles can be arranged to create an almost limitless array of patterns & designs.
“When lit correctly, this tile is simply stunning on large surfaces,” commented Awards judge Adam Tibbats of Tibbats UK.
His observation ties in with the concept underpinning STACtile, which has been designed and developed as a tactile, contemporary cladding solution brought to life through light.
The company behind this winning product, STAC architecture, included with its entry seven different patterns in which identical tiles of a simple graphite concrete finish can be arranged.
Other concrete finishes are now available for the wider architectural market, along with tiles in sandstone, marble, and CNC-ed hardwoods.
The 2016 Restaurant & Bar Product Design award is the second this year to be secured by STAC architecture, which itself is a young and relatively low profile group punching well above its weight.
Prior to its latest win in wall and floor coverings, STAC architecture secured Restaurant of the Year in the Fast/Casual category of RABDA (Restaurant and Bar Design Awards) for a design developed and delivered for the Nando’s leisure and lifestyle food chain.
RABDA is now in its seventh year and remains the only Award in the world dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces.
London-based STAC architecture, which specialises in retail and residential design, was founded two years ago by Paul Thrush and David Snaith, both acknowledged leaders in their fields. Its team of eight professionals has a reputation for creating and delivering innovative design solutions for a wide range of projects.
