Tribù’s Tao table is a German Design Award 2021 winner

placed under awards

‘Practical, elegant and pleasing to the eye’ – so says the jury at the German Design Awards describing our Tao table, which has been named winner of the Excellent Product Design Gardening and Outdoor Living category.

Designed for Tribù by Monica Armani, the Tao table contrasts sculptural solidity with delicacy, using smooth, lightened concrete. The international panel of judges chose Tao for its unique look, use of materials and its ‘graceful interplay of cubist pedestal and delicate top’.

Our Elio chair, which received a Special Mention at the awards, was commended for the strong lines of its teak frame and gently curved seat, which ‘combine to form an inviting seat that promises warmth and comfort’.

The GDA is one of the most renowned international design awards, known for its high standards and ability to identify innovation and outstanding design quality.
