OUR FIRST INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARD
In April 2018, Ostinato Dining Table has been granted the Bronze A’ Design Award in Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Category by the International Design Academy, the grand jury panel of the A’ Design Award & Competition which consists of influential press members, established designers, leading academics and prominent entrepreneurs worldwide.
A’Design Award and Competition is the world’s largest design competition, awarding best designs, design concepts, architecture and products. Winning the A’Design Award is a certificate of excellence for designers and a proof of quality for companies.
When exploring the expressive power of rhythm and repetition, music is the best inspiration. This piece materializes the concept of ostinato – a motif or phrase that persistently repeats in the same musical voice, frequently at the same pitch. In music and in this piece, the base/basso ostinato constructed as a repetitive pattern is the pillar that supports and emphasizes the rich musical harmonies that are developing on top.
Ostinato is a design object that explores rhythm and repetition as ways to transform materials. A dimensional, linear, rigorous and repetitive pattern is over-imposed on the natural fiber of solid wood to create a rich texture, an enhanced sense of materiality. Ostinato is a quietly majestic piece with a pedestal silhouette in clean, minimalist lines, handcrafted from rich materials such as European walnut, and a type of Nero Marquina marble rich in distinct fossilized shells of marine animals.
Ostinato is a monumental dining table that can be successfully integrated into a variety of interior design styles, and paired with a wide range of dining chair models. The table also allows a great deal of customization with a variety of material combinations (wood type and finishes, marble colors).
The OSTINATO motifs and technique are carried along a number of various products: dining tables, coffee tables series, sideboards and lighting resulting in a versatile high-end furniture design collection.
