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.

The desk is a very special place. Public and intimate at the same time, it is a personal space. It is the territory where you set out your work tools, a few mementos and other favorite objects, the books and documents you need, and perhaps a few things you don't yet need, but you never know.

"Hatch by UniFor is a wall that does everything a wall should do. It separates and divides, and like good hatching, it is transparent, so that you can see what it is behind it, just as you can see the paper behind hatching.
In the wall version, Hatch is the door that supports the wall. A wall makes sense if you can go to the other side of it. In the office version, Hatch acts as a desk and a sofa. In the old days, desks had chairs in front of them for visitors, and the owner of the desk might sit behind the desk and make pronouncements. Today it is more polite and convivial to sit on a sofa and converse. With Hatch, there is a sofa in front of the desk."
