Vadasiga Wins Prestigious Good Design® Award 2023 for Innovative Coffee Table Collections designed by Karim Rashid
Company Vadasiga, a trailblazer in the world of furniture design, is thrilled to announce its triumphant win of the esteemed Good Design® Award 2023. This prestigious recognition is bestowed upon Vadasiga for its three exceptional coffee table collections produced in Lithuania and designed by the renowned and visionary designer, Karim Rashid.
The journey of collaboration between Vadasiga and Karim Rashid began at an event in Milan in 2008, where Vaclovas, the owner of Vadasiga, crossed paths with Karim Rashid. This encounter marked the inception of a partnership that has now resulted in the award-winning coffee table collections.
The Good Design® Award, presented annually by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design, and Urban Studies, is a globally recognized accolade that celebrates excellence in design and innovation across various industries.
Karim Rashid’s Distinctive Touch
Karim Rashid, an icon in the design world, has once again showcased his unparalleled creativity and forward-thinking approach in crafting these cutting-edge coffee table collections. His distinctive touch is evident in every detail, from the sleek lines to the vibrant colors, creating a harmonious blend of form and function that captivates the senses.
The Unique Role of Lithuania in International Design
The collaboration between Vadasiga and Karim Rashid highlights the unique role of Lithuania in the international design landscape. This partnership transcends borders, showcasing Lithuania as a hub for innovative and globally recognized design.
Coats of Arms Collection: A Special Tribute to Lithuania
One of the award-winning collections, Ikon Cities, holds special significance as it features the coats of arms of 10 Lithuanian cities (Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda, Šiauliai, Panevėžys, Mažeikiai, Palanga, Neringa, Druskininkai, Birštonas), reimagined by Karim Rashid. This unique tribute intertwines modern design with Lithuania’s rich cultural heritage, symbolizing a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.
A Statement from Karim Rashid
Karim Rashid expresses his delight, saying, “It is a great honor that we won the Good Design Award for 2023. I have been a recipient of Good Design Awards since 1998 and always thrilled and proud. What I love about my work with Vadasiga is that the tables are pure simplicity and flexibility. They are minimal yet sensual, very functional, and sustainable. I have always believed in that. Provide function with a human spirit and playfulness.”
Celebrating Diversity in Design
The winning collections, Ikon Cities, Nebula and Blok, reflect Vadasiga’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional design and embracing diversity. Each piece is a testament to the brand’s dedication to creating furniture that not only elevates living spaces but also transcends conventional design norms.
