Eastman announces Bernard Bühler Award for the 2022 Vanceva World of Color Awards

Eastman, manufacturer of the Vanceva color interlayer system for laminated glass, announced a new award – the Bernard Bühler Award – for the 2022 Vanceva World of Color Awards for exterior architecture and design.

Named after the renowned French architect who has developed multiple projects across France using Vanceva color PVB interlayers, Bühler himself will be the juror for the award and will choose the winner from all entries in the “Exterior” category.

“I am honored by this recognition of my work with color,” Bühler said. “I am an intensive user of Vanceva color interlayers, and I won at the Vanceva World of Color Awards myself in 2012. By combining glass and a wide variety of playful colors, I like to create apartment buildings that are dynamic and fun places to live in. Those interlayers are perfect tools to bring my vision of colored living places to life.”

The winner will be announced at the same time as the winner of the 2022 Vanceva World of Color Awards on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022.
