The “CEDIT per Object” Prize, named after CEDIT – Ceramiche d’Italia, the brand that belongs to Florim Group (Guggenheim Intrapresæ partner since 2015), has been assigned to the work Souvenir of the last Century Stool 05, 2015, by Studio Nucleo (ammann//gallery, Colonia). An everyday object that preserved memories mummifying fragments from the past and mixed them up with the physical presence and the action of now.
The international jury consisting of Silvana Annicchiarico (Director of the Triennale Design Museum, Milan), Christopher Turner (Keeper at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London) and Stefano Torrenti (CEO of Florim Ceramiche), that was selected from the “Object” section of Miart dedicated to designer projects and collectors’ items curated by Hugo Macdonald, explained his choice with the following grounds: “The collection of entries was impressive in its diversity this year, which suggests the Italian design landscape is healthy and vibrant. We all agreed that Studio Nucleo is one of the most important and exciting contemporary design studios in Italy. The stool we have chosen as the winner of the “CEDIT per Object” Prize is a particularly poetic representation of their work. It deserves a place in the Triennale’s permanent collection as a notable piece in the ongoing story of Italian design”.
The winning work will be displayed during the Milan Design Week on the showcases of Florim Flagship Store. After that, it will be donated to the Permanent Collection of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan to support the Arts and design culture.
