Quadrifoglio Group wins the Good Design Award 2022

The Compasso chair by Quadrifoglio Group designed by Dorigo Design wins the prize of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.


Born in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann Jr, and now in its 72nd edition, the Good Design Award is one of the most prestigious and authoritative awards in the world awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum – in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies – to the most innovative products of the year,  in terms of form, materials, construction, concept, function, utility, sustainability and aesthetics.

Quadrifoglio Group won this important award in the Furniture category with Compasso, the wooden chair with sculptural and refined features born from the creativity of Studio Dorigo Design.

The project, launched in June 2022 as part of the Group’s Design Living collection, stood out for the peculiar structure of the rear legs that at an angle of 25° resemble a compass. Attention to detail, calibrated study of thicknesses and sections define the elements with harmonious geometry. The sections of the front legs are triangular at the base and square in the connection with the seat; The rear legs, with a triangular section, are made of a single piece of wood that changes along the height. The concept of variation is also found in the backrest where the curved panel has a differentiated thickness.

Made of ash in Oak, Walnut, Shadow Grey and White, the seat can be made of wood as the base or be padded and covered with a wide selection of fabrics and leathers, to furnish the living area in residential contexts or dedicated to hospitality and catering, becoming its focal point.

The result of careful design and research, the prestigious mention testifies internationally to the constant commitment of Quadrifoglio Group in proposing furnishing accessories capable of giving added value to the environments thanks to an innovative design completely Made in Italy and the high quality of the materials used.


From March 31st, the day of the official award ceremony, Compasso will be exhibited for one year in the permanent collection of The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design in Athens.
