XXIV Compasso d’Oro Award ADI 2016 – Two Mentions of Honour for Magis

02 June 2016

On June 14th, Palazzo Isimbardi in Milan hosted the award ceremony of the Compasso d’Oro Award 2016, at which Magis received two Mentions of Honour, for its Traffic collection (design Konstantin Grcic) and the stool Tibu (design Anderssen & Voll).

Tibu — design Anderssen & Voll, 2014

Tibu stool offers an extremely clean, essential, stylized design: the circular seat and footrest combine to form a single shape, echoed and reflected by the base and column below. The entire stool is in a single colour, but the materials used for the different parts vary according to their function: from the steel frame painted in polyester powder, to the polyurethane seat, also available with a high-quality Kvadrat fabric covering.

Tibu is available with height-adjustment mechanism, or in two fixed heights, and comes in a vast range of colours, to match any taste and setting, at home or in the contract world.

Traffic— design Konstantin Grcic, 2014

Soft, geometrical volumes, with fabric or leather covering, supported on slender, metallised painted metal rod frames: this is the starting point from which Traffic developed. This complete collection of upholstery combines simplicity with refinement, and uses colour as a multifarious and expressive language. Playing on different proportions, the basic concept of Traffic is elaborated in a number of different forms: an armchair, a two-seater and three-seater sofa, a bench in two versions, a chaise longue and an island. The collection has expanded further to include two low tables, one large, one small, and a high table, again with a metal rod frame, but with a top in artificial stone, adding another tactile sensation to the home and contract scenario.
