The designed wood floor of the SKEMAidea brand and created by architect Franco Driusso, won the prestigious Archiproducts Design Award 2022 for the Finishes category.
During the Archiproducts Design Awards Night, the exclusive event celebrating the nominees, longlisted, jurors, winning brands and designers, which was held on the evening of November 23 in the Visconti Pavilion on Via Tortona in Milan, our Yles Tarsìa floor, in the Carbo finish, designed by Franco Driusso, was awarded among the products considered excellences of international design.
The Archiproducts Design Awards award established by Archiproducts and awarded each year by a jury of 40 of the most important names on the global creative and interior design scene, aims to highlight and reward excellence in international design, with a privileged look at the encounter between designers and manufacturers, creativity and innovation, and the synergies that shape objects.
Yles Tarsìa Carbo, which is among the Winner 2022 brands for the Finishes category, received the award designed by Spanish studio MUT Design and made by De Castelli.
Yles Tarsìa is a true passe-partout to creativity. A three-layer parquet made in Italy, with traced and certified origin, it brings the isosceles trapezoid to become a creative element and the basis for composing new patterns.
Through the simple shape of its module, extremely precise in its numerical ratio, designed to be simply ingenious and get out of the classic patterns, Tarsìa manages to express its full creative potential; thus hexagons, triangles, honeycombs or Hungarian herringbone are composed on the surface.
SKEMAidea's designed parquet, which recalls the ancient art of inlay in its name, takes on iconic traits in the Carbo finish, an oak with a strong character, made dark by the smoked processing that originates in its tannins.
To emphasize the texture, it is brushed and finished with a textured effect and a natural beeswax oil applied to give it vibrancy and contrast.
Architect Franco Driusso, the designer who developed Yles Tarsìa Carbo for SKEMA, was also honored on the ADA 2022 evening with an award made by Salvatori and signed by Michael Anastassiades.
