The Award Winners
Here they are: the 29 innovations Stylepark awards at the Salone del Mobile 2018 as part of Stylepark Selected.
“Nautica” is a hanging chair that pays homage to one of the first pieces created by Expormim in the 70s. Alberto Sánchez, the creative mind behind MUT Design, redesigned it practically from scratch. He approached the piece from a fresh new perspective, claiming the beauty attached to natural materials but avoiding nostalgia as an aesthetic resource.
The swing captures the gaze of the observer thanks to the subtle play of shadows that results from its rocking movement, evoking the reflection of sunlight on the liquid skin of ocean waves. In spite of its visual lightness, the piece is remarkable for its sturdiness and resistance.
In the words of the young designer, it comes as “the result of the painstaking attention to detail, the desire to stimulate and the respect for tradition which is the reason why handcrafted rattan is the only material used in this design”.
“Nautica” became the icon of Expormim after it was awarded the Red Dot 2014 in the category of best product design recognizing both quality and innovation. The Red Dot, awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen (Germany), is one of the most prestigious international awards in the design field.
