Altaj receives good design award 2022

The international award confirms the importance of detail in design

Altaj, the project by SBGA | Blengini Ghirardelli for Lualdi, received the Good Design Award 2022, one of the world’s most coveted and widely recognised design awards.

First conceived in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann Jr., the award was created to acknowledge the most innovative products designed throughout the year in terms of form, materials, construction, concept, function, utility, sustainability and appeal.

Now in its 72nd edition, it is organised every year by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd.


The reasons for the award are the project’s expressive and interpretative potential: the collection is designed to go beyond the stark minimalism of traditional flush-with-wall doors.

The metal profile framing the door adds aesthetic value, further emphasising the door’s symbolic value as a means of crossing, passage, and connection, without the door disappearing into the wall. The decorative aspect thus emerges from the wall, highlighting the symbolic meaning of crossing and passage.

“Altaj is a product of the desire to combine the simplicity of forms with technological research and performance”, explains architect Giuseppe Blengini. “Taking this object’s capacity for expression and customisation to the extreme.”

Altaj is distinguished by its unusually slim frame: a linear graphic form that projects the door forward by at least 1.5 cm, lending three-dimensionality to the object and surroundings. Altaj stands out even with the door open, due to its symmetrical frame and lack of contact.

Precisely because it is so light, Altaj can easily be customised with a wide variety of materials such as wood, stoneware, leather and wallpaper to create distinctive visual effects and serve as the room’s focal point thanks to its singular and original design.

The attention to detail and expressiveness of Lualdi’s designs speak to the architect, becoming a key element in determining the style and atmosphere of the setting.
