For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.
Keeping pace with the frenetic modern office, this table and seating collection – from frequent collaborators EOOS and Keilhauer – is always ready for a breakout session. The seven-piece series is supported by light, scaffold-like wire bases on sturdy casters. Cleverly designed features heighten its multi-functionality: a room divider doubles as an acoustic panel; a high-backed bench maximizes privacy; and the plugged-in table and its workshop-inspired orange extension cord, both central to the collection, house a multi-socket power supply and a recessed shelf for charging devices.
