At Decorex Durban 2012, Plascon showcased the 2012 “Endless Possibility” Colour Forecast, by calling on four celebrated designers to each interpret one theme from the Forecast in creating part of the Plascon stand. Koop worked with the Shaw Sisters on the Outside Room.
Using natural materials and organic colours inspired by the Plascon Origins palette, the concept answered the complex question: “how do we enjoy the climate?” This project was when the show chair range was envisioned. The first version had cushions that were hand screen printed by the Shaw Sisters. Koop designed planter boxes made from reclaimed packing pine, that could stack up on each other to form a “green wall” the item won “best green product” of the show. The floor was also made from the reclaimed packing pine, placed in a herringbone pattern that wrapped up on to the walls. The planks were painted in the various colours from the Origins palette and made for a talking point for all visitors to the stand.
