AVA © wins AIA Nebraska Design Award
The American Institute of Architects, Nebraska chapter conferred an award for “Excellence in Architectural Detail” to AVA ©, a produce of our furniture line, MOD. AVA © is a stackable display system to highlight collections, books, and other precious possessions. The unit’s recursive geometry allows for multiple stacking options from the simple and repetitive to the highly dynamic and unexpected. Strong magnets hold the units together. Used individually, AVA © is a stool, a side table, or even a planter. AVA © may also be integrated into architecture as a partition screen, or part of wall system or cabinet.
Jury Comments: “The robust concrete walls of the San Francisco Art Institute’s 1963 addition by Paffard Keatinge-Clay provides the inspiration and starting point for this playful and sculptural metal shelving system which can be reconfigured and reinvented in a variety of ways. The monochrome version painted white accentuates the plasticity of the tetrahedron geometry created by the folded break formed metal units.”
