Otto by Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas for altreforme wins the Archiproducts Design Award!
OTTO, the room divider designed by Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas for altreforme, has won the Archiproducts Design Award in the Furniture category-Sustainability Award.
The award ceremony took place on 23 November at the Visconti Pavilion in Milan.
The winners were selected from over 700 entries by a jury of 40 of the most influential names in the world of Architecture, Design and Art at a global level.
OTTO is the first altreforme product to be born entirely from a circular economy project.
It was made from aluminum sheets that due to the company closure imposed by the pandemic in 2020, no longer met the requirements of deformability necessary to produce automotive bodies. These sheets were recovered from other moulds and destined for a new life instead of being discarded.
OTTO was born as an expression of freedom. The pattern, moves, changes and becomes other than itself. It is dynamic. The moment of change is represented using a plot that seems to move. The movement and the rotation change the design perception. The surface is drilled to turn into an observation point.
Thank you Archiproducts for this prestigious award!
