LAN Collection for GAN is the winner of NYCxDESIGN AwardsMay 2018

LAN Collection, designed by Neri&Hu for GAN, just won in the 3rd annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, the result was announced at ICFF yesterday.

NYCxDESIGN Awards is a global design competition presented by Interior Design and ICFF. Product entries from 24 different countries were competing for the awards this year.

Neri&Hu questions the sofa typology by breaking apart the normally bulky and cumbersome furniture into its components, which can be reassembled in flexible parts. The back component draws from the origins of GAN as a textile brand, by referencing old style weaving looms. The vertical structure allows handmade fabrics to be hung as a backdrop, while an elastic woven strap serves as a support for the moveable back cushions.

The seat element is also composed of separate cushions as well as a small wooden surface which can act as a small side table, each interchangeable for various configurations.
