Arpino has won a 2019 Red Dot Award: Best of the Best for 'OXS' - its new line of urban furniture. The OXS range includes elegant urban lighting and way finders, airy pergolas, multimedia kiosks, and protective bus shelters as well as traditional urban essentials such as tree guards, bins, benches, and bollards.
The collection is distinguished by minimal lines and modular structure, which allows great flexibility in adjusting to various spaces.
The renewal and the access of all to the public space understood as a phenomenon of ethnic, cultural and religious fusion, as well as the awareness of a changing public space resulting from the impact of technological information, was the starting point for the creation of this line, drawn and produced between Europe and Africa. ARPINO's inspiration for 'OXS' was taken from multi-functional public spaces across the Mediterranean and a borderless notion of what it means to inhabit and use common spaces, day and night.
