The prolific and talented designer, Giulio Manzoni, was born in 1952 and graduated with honors in architecture from Milan Polytechnic, which led fluidly into a career in design. This was proven when he won the Leonardo prize from the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan with his product Riletto. He also holds many patents for various products working mainly in Industrial Design.
One such product is the 4×4 Extendable Dining Table, a beautiful table of canaletto walnut by one of our new brands, Ozzio Italia. This table has recently been awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2016 in the Product Design Category with the following reasons:
“The new table 4X4 presents an exclusive opening system. The product changes its shape and outlook because of the extensions that, once opened, match the top and give an elegant leaf motif.”
The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design and communication design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum in Essen, Germany. There are prize categories for product design, design agencies, and design concepts. Since 1955, designers and producers can apply for the prizes with the winners being presented in an annual ceremony. Winning products are presented in the Red Dot Design Museum on the premises of the historical Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen.
The prize-winners list includes companies such as Siemens, Apple, BMW, the Bose Design Center, Porsche and Lenovo.
We are featuring this new table in our showroom in the fall of 2016, and anticipate the excitement that it will generate.
