Domitalia’s Bouchon chair system, designed by Radice & Orlandini Design, has won the Good Design Award for worldwide design excellence by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
The award, established in 1950, targets projects every year that stand out for their high quality and high creative and innovative content.
Bouchon is a simple project aiming at a formal, evocative and extremely straightforward language. The bottle cap chair, for example, has acork seat that is actually pressed into the metal structure without the use of screws, taking advantage of the natural fiction of the material. The iconic reference to a sparkling wine cap is immediate and comprehensive.
