A really groundbreaking product is widely acknowledged, but the success of the patented technology Snowsound by Caimi Brevetti is almost a Guinness record: 16 awards in less than 3 years. And the latest, the oldest and most influential in the field of design, is the richly deserved Compasso d’Oro for Flap Panel System designed by Alberto and Francesco Meda.
The WOW! material Snowsound is still on the podium with Flap, that adds to Fondazione ADI’s heritage, the collection of the products winners of Compasso d’Oro Prize since 1954.
Flap system is much more than a sound absorbing panel for acoustic comfort; it has won the jury, who stressed the exceptional performance of a “versatile and open system which is a new solution to such an invisible problem as sounds and noises”.
A dynamic and evolutive system that adds a formal simplicity to an advanced sound-absorbing performance and it impacts significantly as to appearance and compositional freedom.
A masterpiece of industrial design coherent with the Louis Sullivan’s motto “Form follows function”.
Here is the interview with Alberto and Francesco Meda made by WOW! at Caimi Brevetti booth stand on the occasion of the presentation of Flap at Salone del Mobile.
