Magisso Take Good Design Awards

The Magisso TeacupThe Magisso Teacup

HELSINKI-Magisso, a design resource, has won two Good Design awards from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture for the Magisso Serving Set and the Magisso Teacup.

The Serving Set consists of a pie server, a cheese knife and a cheese slicer. Designed by Maria Kivijarvi, the products can be set sideways on the table so the blade doesn't tarnish the tablecloth.

The Teacup, designed by Laura Bougdanos and Vesa Jaasko, has a triangular bottom that can be tilted so that the strainer side of the cup is lower. The user places tea leaves on the strainer and then pours the hot water until the leaves are covered.

A Magisso statement said the Good Design awards received submissions from several thousand manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms throughout the world.
