FORMER/BUSNELLI GROUP IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNING OF THE ARCHIPRODUCTS DESIGN AWARDS WITH THE CONTROVENTO TABLE DESIGNED BY FRANCESCO FACCIN

The Controvento table designed by Francesco Faccin won the award created by Archiproducts, which, at its second edition, wants to celebrate the excellence of international design.
The jury, composed of 40 of the most important international architectural studios, has rewarded the table as an innovative solution, resulting in distinctive formal and material research.
Controvento, designed for the home environment but also ideal for the Contract and Hospitality world, is an expression of contemporary taste.
The sophisticated design of the legs, from which the product’s name comes from, is inspired by the backstones used in architecture and is the symbol of the perfect balance between form and functionality, the creative foundation of his designer, Francesco Faccin.
For the Former/Busnelli group, the award is a symbol of the unavoidable synergy between company and designer.
