Good Design Awards knows Good Design
January 2012 – The luminaires Keyra and Ixi of Custom Lighting Murano Due Due, a brand division of the FDV Group, received the Good Design Award 2011, the prestigious international award dedicated to excellence in design, promoted by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Created in 1950 from an idea of Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann Jr., every year the Good Design Award gives a prize to designers and companies for the most innovative products.
Born from the creative talent of Roberto Paoli, Keyra represents the perfect combination between old forms, such as light, and contemporary technologies, like LEDs. It is a timeless icon that donates a sensation of lightness and flexibility to the space, drawing the attention of observers.
Ixi, designed by Filippo Caprioglio, is a cascade of sparkling lights that intersect to give life to a contemporary design with the spectacular strength of glass and the advanced technology of LEDs. The result is great style, boldness and personality.
Design and innovation – the distinctive features of the luminaires proposed by Murano Due – meet with excellence to convert ideas into reliable, long-standing products that distinguish the contemporary lifestyle while leaving a mark for the future.
Once again, the Good Design Award is an evidence of the great attention paid by the FDV Group to design and technology, as well as to the recovery of the noble past represented by Murano glass works, guaranteeing the high quality typical of glass artists from the Venetian island.
Just like the other winners of the GOOD DESIGNTM Award 2011, Keyra and Ixi can be found in the gallery of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum at http://www.chi-atheanaeum.org.
