Good Design Award for mmcité
29/01/2020 - Two benches from mmcité, Pixel and Landscape Compact, have received a Good Design award for 2019.
 
Chief designer of mmcité and co-creator of both award-winning products, David Karásek, has a clear vision for the definition of good design: 'Good design for me is the same as a good product. That means it is functional, well made, and has a form which stirs up your emotions.' His outlook is shared by the Chicago Athenaeum, who gave mmcité a 2019 Good Design award for not one, but two products: Pixel and Landscape Compact. These awards have been running for almost 70 years, making them not only one of the most prestigious, but also among the most historic awards worldwide in the field of design.
Benches Pixel

Benches Pixel

A playful mosaic for grown-up spaces. This is Pixel – winner of Red Dot and Big SEE awards. Street furniture as a mosaic of square modules arranged into almost any shape. Symmetrical, regular, and even completely irregular patterns make for a brand-new way to liven up a public space. Pixel is also a model example of sustainability and mindful use of resources: it is made from short wooden lamellas left over from the production of larger benches. Co-creators of the product are design duo Herrmann&Coufal, and you will find interesting Pixel bench arrangements in a number of major European cities. Pixel will soon also be seen lighting up the area around Montjuic castle in sunny Barcelona.
Landscape Compact

Landscape Compact

The bench as a landscaping element. This is Landscape Compact – long straight and wavy lines, coloured with a lengthways wooden stripe. Its striking side profile, with the classic spacing between the seat and backrest, determines the basic form. A bench with a high raised backrest subverts the usual dimensions you would expect, and this restrained extravagance grabs your attention. The individual building blocks can be combined almost limitlessly to create elongated arrangements with curved and straight sections. Having already taken honours at the ELLE Decoration and Best of Products awards, it is now a proud Good Design winner.
 
The fact that design and production is, above all, a team effort is testified not only by the production line, but also the in-house design studio itself at mmcité. From the very first sketches and brainstorms with designers, right up to the last metal rivet, our products pass through the hands of dozens of people. They say that only well drilled teams and happy employees will do the best job. For teamwork like that to be seen in public, that is the result of success in the business world, too. In its home country, the Czech Republic, mmcité was awarded the title of Company of the Year 2019. A great deal of thanks is in order to everybody who contributed to this journey.
