BASF is the world’s leading chemical supplier to the automotive industry. With the most extensive chemical product portfolio in the industry, BASF develops chemistry-driven innovation for efficient lightweight construction, electromobility, lower emissions and greater design freedom.
At BASF, we don’t do design, but we do help to make design projects even more successful with the right material. We bridge the gap between the creative ideas of the designers and the possibilities but also the limits of materials. BASF’s design consultation centre, designfabrik®, offers support in every phase of the design process that extends beyond the selection of material to component design, the right processing methods as well as the choice of surfaces and colours. In 2014, the first designfabrik® in Asia was opened in Tokyo to meet the requirements of the local markets and trends.
