Kvadra Design's 3angle collection, the work of designers from Grupa, is the winner of The Croatian Designers Association's Award for best product design in the period 2011—2012. The 3angle armchairs and sofas, together with the Revolve sofa, are featured at the Exhibition of Croatian Design 1112, held at the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb and which will run until 15th November 2012.
In response to their triumph, the designers from Grupa (Filip Despot, Ivana Pavić, Tihana Taraba) declared, “It is really refreshing and greatly motivating to collaborate with a company who was responsible for initiating its own collaboration with the designers. This is an example of a benchmark in Croatia and we are grateful to be a part of it. We are overjoyed that this design has come to life among its users and that it has also been recognised by the métier, a great moment for every company and for every designer.”
The 3angle armchairs and sofas are examples of contemporary Croatian design of upholstered furniture, earmarked for the contract furniture sector, although this does not exempt the collection from being used in private interiors. It was used this midyear to furnish the headquarters of the Heinzel Business Centre in Zagreb and was also temporarily an integral part of the set design of the exhibition ‘Edgar Degas - Sculptures’, whereby Klović Court celebrated the 30th anniversary of its founding.
