This important acknowledgement is the result of an accurate selection among more than 600 products from 300 design firms coming from 15 different countries around the world. The qualified committee has been composed mainly by architects – 40 international architecture studios – along with some of the most famous architecture photographers, plus Archiproducts, a specialized design platform.
Each member of the commission has worked independently on a shared voting platform indicating his/her personal vision of Design and Architecture, awarding the research of innovative and formal solutions, as well as the ability to define and foresee new applications, both for residential and contract.
Archiproducts has created this award to celebrate the excellence in the Design of all the categories: Furniture, Bathroom, Kitchen, Outdoor, Contract, Lighting, Decor, Finishes, Construction, Building Shell, Components & Materials, and Tech.
JUBE is the result of Vistosi’s savoir faire and handcrafting skills, added to the creativity of Favaretto & Partners, multi-awarded design studio opened in Padua (Italy) by the architect Paolo Favaretto in 1973, joined by his son Francesco, designer, in 2009.
Curiosity, accuracy and passion for the research are the guide-lines that have led the designers’ work besides the famous skills of our glass-masters. This team-work has made possible JUBE: essential and sinuous with a vintage charm.
The combination of two glass pieces – blown and then joined – generates an overlapping play of tone-on-tone effects. The lower element is white with a LED light inside, while the upper and encircling glass is transparent and available in four different shades: crystal, antique green, smoked and burnt sienna. The precision of the cut applied on the glasses gives a perfect joint and a two-in-one look.
