Transformit Receives Good Design Award

May 15, 2007

Tension fabric R&D leader Transformit has received the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. It received the award for "The Dynamics," its proprietary system of rectilinear tension fabric frame components. The Dynamics enables designers to achieve designs previously not possible with curvilinear shapes atypical of tension fabric structures. The system utilizes aluminum extrusion frames that facilitate up to three layers of fabric and special effects through layering of translucent fabrics, application of pattern and/or graphics and the integration of lighting beside or between layers. Transformit is in the process of working with interior designers to create custom applications for hospitality, retail, exhibit and event arenas. The Good Design Award was founded in Chicago in 1950 by Edgar Kaufmann Jr. with the participation of top designers including Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll and Russell Wright. Each year the museum receives hundreds of submissions. Learn more at
