For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.
Bringing cohesion to the kitchen and living room landscape, Ora Ito’s uniform design is anything but monotonous. At the system’s heart, long shelves provide fluid transitions across fully customizable compartments, both open and closed; matte and gloss lacquered finishes come in an array of colours. Created with low wall units in mind, Foodshelf deftly rebukes the kitchen’s vertical vocabulary in favour of a unified horizontal aesthetic.
