Design at BASF

Design aspects play an important role in the success of new products in the region, including color choice, material combination and material finish. BASF helps bring to life the creative ideas of the design community in Asia Pacific.
In the new research building B007, BASF research moves closer together. Here, scientists from material physics, formulation and specialty chemicals research work door-to-door. They develop new solutions together with polymer chemists in the neighboring building. A bridge, shortening paths, interconnects the two buildings. Furthermore, open communication areas facilitate exchange between the scientific disciplines. This stimulates creative ideas, and benefits the efficient development of effective solutions.
