brain child of massimo vignelli, this ubiquitous melamine dinnerware is designed to be stackable in a compact way. originally manufactured in italy, it won the first compasso d’oro award for good design in 1964. introduced later in the united states and manufactured by heller, the dinnerware became extremely popular, especially after it was produced in a rainbow of brilliant colors. this timeless design is still in production and offered by unicahome in bright white.
in the permanent collection of the museum of modern art (and unicahome)
