The 2012 Good Design Award has been awarded to Bonaldo for its Still table and Axo Light’s collaboration work with Karim Rashid, the Nafir lamp.
Organised by the Chicago Athenaeum, this prize is a well-known international award that certifies the excellence of a product’s quality as well as its design.
Bonaldo’s Still table, designed by Bartoli Design, is a collection of six tables which came out for the first time in last year’s Salone del Mobile. It consists of concrete legs that support the wooden tabletop and creatively emerges through it, available in a square, rectangular and rounded version.
Karim Rashid’s first lamp design with Axo Light, Nafir, is a design that was born from comparing light to music, creating a fluid surface that is pulled upwards in different areas. It is made out of white injection moulded plastic an available in three different colours, sourced with LED lighting.
The lamp had also been nominated as the Best of the Year 2012 Honoree by the US magazine, Interior Design and was a finalist at the Spark Awards 2012.
