Global provider of decor materials solutions Toppan will hold a decor materials exhibition in collaboration with Toppan Group companies Interprint, Toppan Europe, and Toppan Interamerica, called the &CO, from 9-12 May 2023 at Design Post Cologne in Cologne, Germany.
Based on the concept of working together to ‘collaborate’, ‘connect’, and ‘co-create’, the exhibition will present the latest printed decor materials for the furniture and interior industries.
Specifically, Toppan will present the latest decor material designs using their printing technologies, proposals for a sustainable society, next-generation experiences employing digital technologies, and new possibilities for decor materials for the global market.
For eco-friendly products, Toppan will showcase multiple new products at &CO. These include decor films that can protect the surfaces of furniture and fittings while also delivering attractive design, products that use recycled resin to promote a circular economy without sacrificing functionality, and biomass products that help drive a low-carbon economy by using sugar cane and other plant-derived materials.
For digital technologies, Toppan will run various demonstrations, including decor films that enable a wood-grain panel to turn into an information display device, a digital simulation tool for reproducing decor films design on a tablet device, and a digital library of virtual spaces and virtual materials giving a glimpse of the metaverse.
In its decor materials business segment, Toppan focuses on the global market as it aims to design and develop products that meet the quality requirements and environmental needs of each region.
