The Yale sofa and Vita modular system which is on display at Supernatural Contemporary Furniture in the Bay Area were both given recognition during the The awarding of the Compasso d'Oro. The Awards Ceremony was held in Rome the 12th July 2011, at MACRO, the Museum of Contemporary Art.
“The awarding of the Compasso d'Oro is a moment of recognition of excellent products in the history of design and development of innovation in large - scale production,” said Robert Allen of Supernatural.
The Yale project is composed of armchair and sofas adorned by a wide array of cushions. These items were designed by Jean-Marie Massaud and developed by the MDF Italia project center. The Compasso d’Oro Award recognized “the vision of padded sofa inserted into a minimal structure.” The structure was made of extruded aluminum, aluminum die cast legs, painted opaque in matte white or black or glossy white. The versions available include steel profile and integrated pillows.
The product Vita is a modular system based on a web application designed by architect Massimo Mariani in partnership with Aedas R&D, and received two honorable mentions at the Ceremony.
