Elena Mirò presents Compasso d’Oro

Elena Mirò will be welcoming a selection of pieces from the “Compasso d’Oro” collection to its Milan store (Via Dante 4) from April 17th to 22nd during the Salone del Mobile Furniture Show.
The “Compasso d’Oro” (Golden Compass) is a leading international design prize, which was established in 1954 and is today run by the Association for Industrial Design. The “Compasso d’Oro” collection tells the history of costume and trends in Italy over more than five decades through pieces of design. In 2004 it was declared part of the “national heritage of historic and cultural interest” by the Ministry of Heritage, and therefore worthy of being protected and preserved.
The Miroglio Group decided in 2010 to sponsor the overhaul and restoration of the precious historic collection, testifying to the Group’s resolve to broaden its horizons beyond the worlds of textiles and apparel to facilitate contacts and “creative contaminations” capable of further highlighting the representativeness of Italian products in the world.
With this in mind, the Miroglio Group’s leading international curvy fashion brand Elena Mirò will be hosting in its Milan store (Via Dante 4) three works from the “Compasso d’Oro” collection whose curvaceous, rounded forms encapsulate the brand’s philosophy. The three pieces are:
- the “Atollo Lamp” (winner of the Compasso d’Oro prize in 1979)
- the “Paravent Cartoons” partition wall (winner of the Compasso d’Oro prize in 1994)
- the “MT3 Rocking Chair” (winner of the Compasso d’Oro prize in 2008)
