20 Jan 2015 Good Design Award, an international renown for Busana

Good Design Award, an international renown for Busana

SID Pills ask him the features of his winning product, Basket Chair

PADOVA. 

A new meeting with Alessandro Busana, SID graduate, professional designer and SID tutor. We made an interview with him for a clear reason, to tell us about his recent international award!



Hi Alessandro, let’s start from the latest news: what did you win?
I won the Good Design Award 2014, the most enduring international prize born in 1950 by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd. This year 700 new products, divided into 25 categories and 36 nations, participated. It’s considered one of the most important international prizes, so I’m very happy about the result.

How did you know about the victory?
It was a real surprise because I didn’t know that the company Gaber submitted the product to the selection of Good Design Award. An e-mail from Gaber’s marketing office joyfully communicated the result.

There were so many difficulties to overcome and so much passion to channel in order to make a vague idea a real saleable product. For this reason, an international reward like Good Design Award is the proof you’re doing your job well. It won’t change my life for sure, but it’s a nice motivational push.

So tell us something about this product!
The product is Basket Chair, a chair made of technopolymer shell and interchangeable legs, presented during the last edition of Milan Design Week.
Like any other product I’ve created, the project was born after a very long period of research.
As everybody know, chair design is very difficult because of the technique and the huge number of models already developed: to design something recognizable and desirable is very hard.

The concept of Basket Chair started from the “sense of container” to turn an ordinary chair into a cozy “people container”: a place, more than an object, where to find well-being and protection. The idea of container evolved to a graphic rhythm (useful for the stacking process too) which reminded me subconsciously a stylized rattan basket... here’s the name Basket Chair.

Which steps leaded to the mass production of the chair?
The company was farsighted and believed in the project by developing a wonderful wooden prototype (I jealously held it in my studio), which was useful to understand the needed changes before the final steel mold. The work lasted about 5 months, that after all it’s a quite short period to achieve this kind of chairs.

“How is it made”?
As said above, the armchair is made of a technopolymer shell supporting plastic, wooden or curved-rod legs. This feature allows the company to provide a wide range of products (using just a single mold) to satisfy the increasingly different demands of the clients.

As always, the most difficult obstacle was to realize the stacking, which greatly affects on the aesthetic, without altering the identity of the chair. In this case, it was structured for at least 6 units by playing on the rhythmic disposal of the holes of the body. It was an acceptable compromise. I remind you we’re talking about a chair for the Contract market, where the term “compromise” is more used than ketchup on fries.

Did the search for compromise limit your work?
I must say that is more satisfying in finding good solution while managing compromises, than in having carte blanche - you’re not a designer if you have carte blanche!

Will Good Design Award be a springboard for you work in 2015? Do you have any “good intention”?
By now, the award brought me visibility in the Internet and on the press, but I hope it will also be a vehicle to give birth to new collaborations.
My new products for 2015 are still in a prototyping/evaluation phase, so to avoid bad luck I don’t disclose anything. Some news should be ready for next I Saloni in Milan.
Among the “good intentions” for 2015, I’ve thought to donate a chair to SID, if you have a nice place where to position it… far away from the modeling lab hopefully!! Good luck to everybody!
