Wins the Archiproducts Design Awards 2022
ABACO - the new modular system designed by Natalino Malasorti, which hides sanitary functions and engineering technology within a single volume - wins the seventh edition of the Archiproducts Design Awards 2022 and is awarded the Special Mention for Sustainability.
«We are proud of this recognition - says Natalino Malasorti - Artistic Director and Designer. I consider Abaco a step further compared to existing toilet-bidet designs: a product that combines the engineering part with the functional part. Nobody has ever pushed himself to this extent. Integrating the plumbing and electrical part with the flush and drain within a single system is an absolute novelty and an attraction for many architects and interior designers. Many call it 'the dream in every architect's drawer'. While its aesthetics may seem simple, developing its functioning was very complicated. Almost ten years have passed since I started working on this project: it has grown piece by piece together with the technology at my disposal. Today the product is fully functional, with a result above my expectations.»
Introduced for the first time in the 2021 edition, the Special Mention for Sustainability is an acknowledgement aimed at celebrating products that have distinguished themselves in terms of the use of recyclable and biodegradable materials, production techniques that reduce emissions hence with a minimum environmental impact throughout the entire life cycle of the product, from production to use by the end user.
ABACO is entirely made of stainless steel, a high-performance material, hygienic, antibacterial, totally recyclable, and ideal in a bathroom environment. Its durability over time is the essence of quality and ecology. ABACO was examined and evaluated by a specifically selected jury of eco-design and sustainability experts from the world of design and architecture.
