We proudly present the winners of the garden unique contest 2012 “Dining Outdoors”

A conference call was held between the six members of the jury and although it was tough, a decision was made for the best three. These three winners will have their ideas prototyped and displayed at the spoga+gafa in Cologne from September 2nd to 4th 2012.

The first prize went to the transportable “garden kitchen” Canorta by Reto Togni from Switzerland. It was judged by the jury to be “playing with the robust simpleness of proven systems in a useful way. Its unpretentious but reliable appearance encourages the user to take an invitation to the garden or courtyard as a spontaneous and straightforward action to tackle.”

The second prize was given to a subtle delicate ensemble of garden chair and table called LINEA by Marco Gottardi from Italy. The jury was persuaded by “the timelessness achieved through basic forms, which go back to classic outdoor furniture archetypes. Surprising interactions with their very own poetry can be expected through the intended Moiré-effect of overlapping strips of seat, backrest and table top.”

The third winner is the felt bottle cooler by Manfred Makedonski from Germany. The jury is convinced, that this cooler solves the problem at a picnic of toppling bottles on the meadow by “simple elegance” and “quality materials.”
