Cobra International is reinforcing its long collaboration with the JEC Group by designing and manufacturing this year’s JEC Composites Innovation Award trophies.

Designed and produced by Cobra’s design and development department – the in house team that supports Cobra’s mass production operations with specialist expertise in product design, industrial design and prototyping – the design of the 2022 trophies and its sweeping curves are influenced by perfume bottles, linking back to JEC’s French cultural heritage. 

The design also combines a pallet of different materials to symbolise the JEC Group’s complete coverage of the composites sector. Acrylic, upcycled teak production waste from the furniture industry, Innegra high molecular weight polypropylene, flax, carbon, and aramid materials have been combined with Sicomin’s GreenPoxy 33 bio-resin to reference the award programme’s combined focus on innovation and sustainability.

The JEC Composites Innovation Awards are presented annually, recognising and rewarding cutting-edge projects that exploit the full potential of composite materials. Over the last 20 years, the JEC Composites Innovation and Startup programs have celebrated both innovation and partnership. The JEC Group will announce the winners for the 2022 JEC Composites Innovation awards on April 26th in Paris and in live streaming, and the Start-up Booster winners on May 3rd at JEC World.

“Cobra is delighted to reinforce its partnership with JEC Group, sponsoring and manufacturing the JEC trophies for 2022,” said Cobra CEO Danu Chotikapanich.  “Working with the latest bio resin technology, natural fibre reinforcements and upcycled composite and wood production waste materials, our design and development team have created some stunning trophies for this year’s award season.”
