Compasso d’Oro ADI
14 - 22 June 2016
Milan, Palazzo Isimbardi 24th edition of the Compasso d’Oro ADI Exhibition
The International Jury of the 24th edition of the Compasso d’Oro ADI Exhibition has awarded the Honorable Mention to Parete SC&A, a modular system for glazed partitions designed for UniFor by Pierluigi Cerri and Alessandro Colombo of Studio Cerri & Associati.
This important international recognition underlines, once again, UniFor's constant focus on research and experimentation, with the aim of developing and manufacturing products that are always highly innovative in terms of form, technology, and type.
Conceived with the idea of transmitting a unique vision of the office environment, this new concept for glass-on-glass sliding partitions is based on the use of floor-to-ceiling structural safety glass inserted between openings in the raised flooring and suspended ceiling. All fixing elements and slide devices are concealed, leaving only the glazing in view.
As noted in the jury's comments, Parete SC&A by UniFor “leaves only the glazing in view, lightening the perception of the enclosed spaces and creating a permeable, rational, and inviting work environment.”
With this award, Parete SC&A has become part of the prestigious Compasso d’Oro ADI Collection, declared a “National Heritage” in 2004 and unique in the world in that it commemorates over 60 years in the history of Italian design.
