Dutch Design Awards 2008

On Saturday October 18th, the Dutch Design Awards 2008 were presented. Wall cabinet Pivot, designed by Shay Alkalay won the award for ‘best residential product 2008’. In 2006 Arco received this prestigious award for the Slim table designed by Bertjan Pot.

The mission of the Dutch Design Awards is the appreciation of excellent Dutch design. The Dutch Design Awards intend to show and appreciate Dutch design in its widest sense. They wish to reflect the position of Dutch design in the world. The award undeniably represents the best works in The Netherlands at that particular moment.
Pivot is a surprising cabinet, which is ideally suited to storing small items and everyday necessities. The solid wood cabinet is built on tall legs and features two drawers. The innovative aspect of this cabinet is the fact that the drawers can hinge, making it possible to open both at the same time, which is impossible with a conventional set of drawers
