This award, which was presented for the first time, recognised the innovative and stylistically confident use of 3D furniture films from the RENOLIT DESIGN range. Nineteen creations were considered in the final round of the Colour Road Star Award, from which an expert jury comprising five international colour and product designers, chose the shaping and the special concept of a kitchen from Xiamen Om Home as the winner.
The Colour Road Star Award 2011 was awarded on 27 March 2012 at the joint trade fair stand shared by RENOLIT Guangzhou Ltd. and Citiking Trade Co. Ltd. Shanghai, the distribution partner of RENOLIT DESIGN in China.
