We are thrilled to announce that our Morelli Bench has won silver in the IIDEX Innovation Awards – Commercial Furniture category. Arconas recently exhibited their outdoor collection at IIDEX, Canada’s National Design & Architecture Exposition and Conference. The Innovation Awards celebrate the industry’s leading manufacturer’s and suppliers within the fields of design and architecture, and recognize outstanding achievement in new product design for the built environment. Eleven judges from the interior design and architecture communities determined the winning products based on their technical creativity, marketability and design ingenuity.
Recognizing the need for outdoor furniture that is elegant, functional, and durable, the Morelli Bench was designed 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.
This sophisticated bench features solid aluminum cast legs and supports either perforated steel planks or ipe wood slats in 66” and 85” width configurations. These perforations are an aesthetic and purposeful design choice that reduce the heat of the seat, making it a comfortable choice in multiple climates. The leg’s must be floor mounted and offer secure and easy installation. The bench was designed by Morelli Designers, a boutique industrial design agency based out of Montreal, Canada.
The Innovation Awards are organized by Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) and presented at IIDEXCanada, the country’s largest exposition and conference for the design, construction and management of the built environment. A complete listing of Innovation Award recipients can be found HERE.
