Ambassadors of Tuscan design Original Ptolomeo and Macis among the protagonists of “Eccellenze del Design in Toscana” the installation promoted by ADI Toscana and Rinascente, within the spaces of Rinascente Firenze.

A journey through the history of Tuscan design was possible from February 21st to 26th in the spaces of Rinascente Firenze.

On the occasion of the event dedicated to the book "Testo", ADI Toscana and Rinascente wanted to dedicate an exhibition to the projects that represent the best of Tuscan production and that, over the years, have won the Compasso D’Oro award, the most important prize in the field of Italian Design, born in 1954 out of an idea by Gio Ponti, with the support of Rinascente itself.

Objects and pieces that for 68 years have embodied the excellency of design and witnessed the deep connection between creative expression and roots. Among these, there are the self-standing bookcase Original Ptolomeo by Bruno Rainaldi and Macis, the table-desk by Lapo Ciatti, chosen as winners, respectively, of the Compasso D’Oro in 2004 and the ADI Design Index 2021.

Two iconic objects thought to study, design, dream and grow, and that contribute to telling the story of that majestic heritage that is Tuscan and Italian design.
