Graffio, designed by Paolo Benevelli and produced by De Castelli, won the
GOOD DESIGN® Award 2019
GOOD DESIGN, founded in Chicago in 1950, remains the oldest and the world’s
most recognized program for design excellence worldwide.
Scratches, engravings, wiry signs mark metal surfaces to tell about old stories.
Scratching not only defines the use of an object, but it becomes a way of materially
fixing the metaphors of life. The scratches and marks are transformed into a quality
and a feature of the metal surface. Imperfections become memories, enhancing
the pure essence of material. Left forever on cabinet doors, the preview of a story
that has not yet been shared.
Produced by De Castelli, 2019
