Standex Engraving Mold-TechStandex Engraving Mold-Tech Tata Motors unveils H2X concept car at Geneva Motor Show

Architexture’s interior surface design replicates signature motif
 
 
At the recent Geneva Motor Show, Ratan Tata, owner of Tata Motors was on hand for the launch of the H2X concept vehicle, inspecting the interior surface finishes created by architexture design consultancy and wrapped in its proprietary Model-Tech® skins. This show car was the premier attraction on the Tata stand, with the tri-arrow brand motif – or jaali – not only found on the instrument panel, but also on the door panels, repeated on the vehicle’s exterior and also in the construction of the Tata stand itself. The tri-arrow branding could not be missed.
Tata’s brand symbol, the jaali, is defined as: “the term for perforated stone or latticed screen, usually with ornamental patterns constructed through the use of calligraphy and geometry. This form of architectural decoration is common in Hindu temples, Indo-Islamic architecture and more generally in Islamic Architecture.”
 
 
When the project began 18 months ago, the architexture team was challenged with replicating this jaali motif, which was accomplished by creating it in various scales, depths and colours in a creamy white and a bright teal, ultimately designing three separate versions.
The first version is for the instrument panel, featuring many 3D topological elements morphing from a full pattern at the front to just dots under the windshield. The second version for the door panel is the deepest, again morphing from full pattern at the front of the doors to dots at the back. The dots then transferred across the door, the B pillar gap and resumed their flow on the B pillar midsection. The rear doors are a transitional morph, where elements were removed to create a more open field of disintegrating pattern integrity. Then finally, the third variation is found on the arm rest, which is a shallow version of the instrument panel grain at a smaller scale.
The car will be released in India, so the team had to design the grain so it can be easily cleaned to withstand the region’s dust and heat.
 
 
Pratap Bose, VP of Global Design for Tata Motors said, “People don’t realize how much a good grain on the micro level is spectacular — it takes a very special skill to create that.” He continued to say that good design isn’t always something you necessarily see right away, you feel it and can sense when it’s not there. This project and others by all three of our architexture studios, is featured in the newly released car design news year book 6, as well in an upcoming issue of the magazine interior motives.

New architexture.design website ignites imagination

Inspiration becomes a reality in new featured video
 
 
How do you turn a spark of inspiration into reality? This is the question answered throughout the new architexture website www.architexture.design.

The website was created to attract those looking for design partners who understand the specific challenges of creating a texture for the future and can follow an idea virtually taken out of the ether, from a bespoke design straight through to production. To effectively communicate this concept of making the intangible tangible, we turned to the limitless possibilities of computer-generated imagery as a unique feature on the new site.
 
 
In the video, we watch a phoenix rise from the ashes, then a single fiery feather falls from the sky, lands on a drawing board and inspires a variety of textures. Fragments of the grain expand and then fall into place like puzzle pieces to create the final feather texture perfectly wrapped fit-to-form. At this point, we transition from digital imagery into live footage of a model running her hand over the surface of the form. From fantasy to reality in under two minutes!
The video and the new site tell the story of our collaborative process; Design, Verify and Produce. Architexture turns the spark of an idea – however fanciful – into an actual surface texture thoughtfully designed for beauty and function.
 
 
Every aspect of the site is aligned with the notion of making something out of inspiration, positioning our architexture teams “as established leaders in the design of bespoke textures, we are not choosers of what already exists, but rather, we are inventors of the new.”

Standex Broadens Engraving Capabilities with Acquisition of GS Engineering

Leading Provider of Cutting-Edge Technology for Soft Surface Tooling
Opportunity to Leverage Capabilities Across Standex’s Global Engraving Footprint

NYSE: SXI – SALEM, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Standex International Corporation (NYSE:SXI) today announced that it has acquired privately-held Genius Solutions Engineering Company (d/b/a GS Engineering) and affiliated GS Innovation, Inc. (together, “GS”). GS is a market leader in the manufacture of highly specialized “soft surface” skin texturized tooling, primarily serving the automotive end market. The acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings. The current GS management team will continue with the Standex Engraving business unit post-closing. GS is based in Maumee, Ohio and has approximately 40 employees. The company was incorporated in 2004.

GS brings Standex Engraving critical proprietary technologies that offer significant advantages in creating tools for “soft surface” components, which are used increasingly in vehicle interiors. The Company specializes in creating IMG (“In-Mold Graining”) molds and tools that are significantly faster to design and produce than those offered by its competitors. The tooling for “soft surface” products offered by GS is highly complementary to Standex Engravings’ current industry-leading capabilities in texturing molds and tools used to create “hard surface” components. Standex Engraving intends to immediately introduce the GS technology across its global production footprint, which will enable customers worldwide to benefit from a combined offering for harmonized designs across a variety of surfaces and materials. Both Standex and GS are united in their plan to achieve this global roll-out plan, and Standex has put in place a five-year, contingent earnout that aligns with these goals to enable the GS management team to participate in the benefits of successful execution.

“This acquisition is a great strategic fit with our existing engraving capabilities and brings innovative, cutting-edge technology to Standex. The GS offering is the best in the market for creating ‘soft surfaces’, one of the faster-growing and higher-margin portions of the global automotive interior market,” said Standex Chief Executive Officer David Dunbar. “We enthusiastically welcome Matt, Grigoriy, and their employees to the Standex family. They will be vital to our ‘soft surface’ roadmap and together we will bring ‘soft surface’ technology to more customers globally.”

“Joining a world-class leader like Standex instantly gives us a global presence, complementary offerings, and broader talent resources to better serve customers,” said the GS founders, Grigoriy Grinberg and Matthew Shade. “We are confident in the combined strategy and believe that Standex provides the right foundation for continued growth.”
