Pianca receives two important awards for its products: the Archiproducts Design Awards for the Contralto valet stand collection and the Good Design Award assigned to the Cornice sideboard.
The Contralto valet stand collection by CMP Design Studio for Pianca scoops an award
Now in their fifth year, the Archiproducts Design Awards shine the spotlight on the status quo of the international creative scene, celebrating excellence in design. Pianca is proud to have received this accolade, which comes from a multidisciplinary jury, consisting of important figures in the field of design and architecture, but also fashion, art and communications.
Recipient of this coveted international prize was the Contralto valet stand collection, the result of a solid collaboration with CMP Design studio. Designed with great sensitivity to modern forms of living, Contralto remains a line of accessories with a streamlined, essential look.
Contralto is designed to create a discreet, almost fluctuating presence in the home to accompany and simplify daily actions. Its appealing design combines functionality and elegance, capable of establishing a liberal, flexible relationship with the surrounding environment.
This is the fifth Good Design Award for Pianca, given to the Cornice sideboard for its innovative vision in spatial and functional terms. Meticulously designed in every detail, Cornice sideboard breaks the mould of classic style canons in its design and everyday use, challenging the concept of limits.
The frame, consisting of a black epoxy varnished frame structure, borders all of the panels, highlighting their height difference compared to the top. The sunken top, lacquered or covered in synthetic leather, thus assumes the configuration of a tray, an “added” space, designed for storage of personal items or various kinds of accessories like a lamp or vase.
A new concept of space is also expressed in the end doors, which open sideways, modifying the normal way of accessing the inside shelves and the classic style of this category of furniture.
