The award-winning Tauko and Tapa products were recently recognised in the US market. They won in two categories of the Best of Year Awards competition, organised by the international magazine Interior Design.
The Tapa pouf is an unconventional solution for reception areas and informal meeting places. Its modular structure ensures a multitude of arrangements, while its wide array of finishes offer countless possibilities to create unique configurations. The jury of the Best of Year Awards competition (BOY Awards) deemed the furniture perfect for office spaces and awarded it the main prize in the "Contract/Modular" category.
The unique design of both products is the work of Polish designer Przemysław Mac Stopa from the Massive Design studio. He is one of the most frequently awarded office interior and equipment designers in the world and has cooperated with Nowy Styl Group many times – his projects include the Hexa modular seating system and the LinkUP chaise longue.
- While the bold design of Tapa and Tauko attracts the attention of our clients and partners, the prizes our products win at various markets are a confirmation that we fit global design trends perfectly. This is an important aspect for us since it is what our clients and architects, with whom we arrange office spaces, expect from us – says Dorota Sołtykiewicz, Director of the Product Management Department at Nowy Styl Group.
The Best of Year award ceremony was held on 1 December during a gala, which was organised in the famous New York office building designed by Frank Ghery ‒ the IAC Building. The awards were received by Mac Stopa and representatives of SixInch North America – Nowy Styl Group's partner in the US market.
