mmcité honored with 2 awards in 2019!
The year 2019 brought us many wonderful things: interesting projects, inspirational connections, and inspiring new products. mmcité products provided comfort and relaxation to people further around the world than ever before. We are always focused on looking ahead, but that doesn‘t mean that we forget the past. Last year was one of prosperity for us; while modesty is a big part of who we are, we can‘t help but be proud of the fact that we are being celebraed from Prague all the way to Washington, DC and beyond!
Our director and chief designer, David Karásek, has a clear vision for the definition of a good product: “Functional, well made, and with a form which stirs up your emotions.” His outlook is shared by the Chicago Athenaeum, who gave us a 2019 GOOD DESIGN award for not one, but two products: Pixel and Landscape Compact. These awards have been running for almost 70 years, making them not only one of the most prestigious, but also among the most historic awards worldwide in the field of design.
A playful mosaic for grown-up spaces. That’s Pixel – street furniture as a mosaic of square modules arranged into almost any shape. Symmetrical, regular, and even completely irregular patterns make for a brand-new way to liven up a public space. Pixel is also a model example of sustainability and mindful use of resources: it is made from short wooden lamellas left over from the production of larger benches. A bench as a landscaping element. That’s Landscape Compact – long straight and wavy lines, colored with a lengthways wooden stripe. The module version with a backrest is a great addition to the collection, commanding attention and admiration.
Creating and producing is a team effort. From the very first sketches and brainstorms with designers, right up to the last metal rivet, our products pass through the hands of a long line of people. We are proud of our work, it’s what we live for. It brings us challenges and triumphs, and the triumphs are marked not only by design awards, but also in the business world. The Czech Company of the Year award we received in Prague in December was both a great honor and a challenge to go further.
Here‘s to more success in 2020!
