27 people from Poland, Romania, Russia and Ukraine took part in the second stage of the Creations of Nature competition, which took place in Barlinek's Polish factory. A unique opportunity to learn about the entire production process and technology, the workshop, which was a part of the fifth edition of the competition, took place on 23-25 July in the surroundings of the Barlinek forests.
Together with young designers, we were looking for the perfect choice for the new colours of the Barlinek board, in line with the latest trends. Interestingly, apart from standard and available methods of colouring with oils or varnishes, the participants decided to experiment with natural products such as currant, beetroot or parsley. Jurors Szymon Hanczar, Michał Wrześniak and Wojtek Trzcionka, who were on site, had the opportunity to comment on their achievements and various attempts at obtaining colour, as well as to help and advise them on the creation of the final product.
- This is a perfect opportunity for us to show you how technologically advanced the floors made of Barlinek boards are – says Dorota Karbowska-Zawadzka, Marketing Director at Barlinek. We are all the more pleased with the experimental approach and the attempts to use natural pigments to obtain colours in such a real and 100% wooden product as our board.
The results of the competition will be announced in October during the Warsaw Home fair, while the participants have until September 10 to present the final result of their work.
