Arconas’ Morelli bench has won the Urban Furniture Award in Industrial Design in the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN awards. The GRAND PRIX DU DESIGN is an annual contest aimed at showcasing the talent of Quebec-based designers and architects. This competition is a contemporary showcase of projects that showcase the talent of Quebec’s design and architecture community, be it residential, commercial, institutional, office or product design.
The bench was designed by Morelli Designers, a boutique Canadian industrial design firm based in Montreal. Recognizing the need for urban furniture that is elegant, functional, and durable, the Morelli bench was created to provide a comfortable waiting experience and raise the value of outdoor public spaces. The timeless design visually enhances the space it lives in, while the flexible material and width options respond to the unique needs of each public space; even indoors. Anchored by moulded aluminum legs, the bench inspires durability, which is essential for busy places. The fine details balance a design that inspires by its simplicity of execution.
The Morelli bench has also received a IIDEX Canada IDC Silver Innovation Award, and an Architizer A+ Awards Special Mention.
