Azure Blue Daylighting Panels Chosen as 2011 Color of the Year

Today Duo-Gard Industries Inc. debuted its choice for the 2011 color of the year for its award-winning line of decorative daylighting panels. Drum roll, please…Azure Blue.

Combining sustainability, versatility and affordability, Duo-Gard’s Azure Blue decorative daylighting panels provide interior designers and architects with an aesthetically appealing design color that is a great escape from traditional and dull indoor lighting panels often found in commercial building environments.

Integrating the vibrant yet serene colors of a tranquil ocean, the Azure Blue decorative daylighting panels allow individuals to bask in a soothing hue of relaxation, even during a hectic workday. The integration of decorative daylighting panels provides architects and consulting specifiers with the flexibility to enhance a building’s sustainable value through the elements of design for 75 percent of the industry’s traditional panel costs.

“We all get caught up in our frantic daily activities and often times we just need to add a little color in our lives. What better way to ease away the everyday headaches than with the implementation of a cool, relaxing decorative panel color?” said David Miller, president of Duo-Gard. “We selected Azure Blue as our decorative daylighting panel color of the year for its aesthetically appealing interior design hue.”

In addition to Azure Blue, Duo-Gard’s lines of decorative daylighting panels are available in a variety of colors and patterns including botanicals, mosaics and grids in lavender, silver, gold and much more. The panel’s translucent features maintain the flow of diffused light throughout a room’s interior, enabling designers to utilize the sustainable benefits of daylighting. Duo-Gard’s custom backlighting and illumination systems also include both static and color-changing LEDs.

“It’s the versatility of the Azure Blue hue that led us to its selection,” said Karen Contway, product development manager – architectural interiors for Duo-Gard. “A perfect blend of color and design elements, our Azure Blue decorative daylighting panel is guaranteed to brighten and transform any indoor space.”
