The magazine "Il Bagno Oggi e Domani" is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To celebrate it, the historic publication has organized an exhibition to be held at the ADI Design Museum in Milan from November 6 to 20. The event is a unique opportunity to discover the evolution of the bathroom sector with a journey through its most significant stages.
"Il Bagno Oggi e Domani," which has dedicated numerous features to Agape in recent years, has included us among the protagonists in the rich 400-page volume produced to accompany the event.
On the occasion of the XXIII edition of the Week of Italian Language in the World, a screening of the docufilm "Alfabeto Mangiarotti" took place on October 24 at the Auditorium of the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo. The event, which was sold out with more than 300 spectators and field professionals, was jointly organized by the Italian Cultural Institute and Mangiarotti Associates Japan with the invaluable support of Kinue Horikawa, a Japanese architect who has worked alongside the Maestro for nearly two decades.
The event, preceded by a presentation by director Davide Maffei, was a tribute to the deep connection between Mangiarotti and Japan. A nation that has played a key role in the Master's career, culminating with the opening of his studio "Mangiarotti & Associates" in Tokyo in 1989.
Another important acknowledgment for Ell a colonna by Benedini Associati: the washbasin has been nominated by Elle Decor Italia for the Bathroom category at EDIDA 2023.

We are pleased to announce that Open Air, the new shower designed by Benedini Associati for Agape, won the Archiproducts Design Award 2020 in the Outdoor category. The mobility and flexibility that evoke the informality of outdoor environments make the Open Air shower a key product of the Outdoor Collection, very unique and appreciated. The base is in dark gray Cementoskin with black anodized aluminum support, while the water supply elements are made of plastic.
The Ufo Outdoor bathtub, also by Benedini Associati, was instead included in the Longlist of the Archiproducts Design Awards 2020. Ufo Outdoor revisits one of the most iconic and historic products in the Agape catalogue. The bathtub, now available for outdoor use, with its large stainless steel disc in a two-tone finish, surprises and enhances any context in which it is inserted.
In the renovated spaces of Agape12, within a story that unfolds between beauty and function, Agape is looking to seeing you at the Milano Design City 2020.
The exhibition, curated by the architect Camilla Benedini, was born from an emotional need: to go back to dreaming and designing, looking for beauty. The hues of pink and green are the protagonists: walls and accessories that are colored giving life to new bright and fresh environments. Beauty is flanked by irony, the primary element of life and of the project, thanks to the drawings of the illustrator Marta Lonardi, who reinterprets the actions of living through characters of the imagination. On this occasion, Agapecasa and Agape present a "capsule collection" with furniture in shades of green, exclusively for the store, proposing an evolution of the Ell washbasin countertop and new variants for the Lariana washbasin and the Lift containers.
We congratulate Nargis and Nasir Kassamali - founders of Luminaire, our historic dealer in the USA, for winning the Compasso d’Oro - Career Award. Our most sincere congratulations for their enduring passion, work and visionary approach!
Another great news from this year’s Compasso d’Oro XXVI edition: Marco Ferreri won the Compasso D’Oro - Career Award. We are glad we could be part of his outstanding journey with two long-seller icons like the Oseries and Barralibera he designed for Agape.
Offices and logistics will be closed from August 10th to 14th included. The showroom will be closed from August 3rd to 23rd included.

We are proud to announce that the Agape Petra Collection in Cementoskin, designed by Diego Vencato and Merendi, has been honored with the Stylepark Magazine Selected Award as one of the best product premieres of the Cologne Design Week. “In these days” - as the jury statement claimed - “exterior spaces receive a great amount of attention when it comes to design and are now truly on a par with interiors. With its Petra outdoor washbasin Agape now offers a wash space suitable for use in the garden that boasts an ultramodern design.” Thank you!
During Design Post Köln 2020, Agape displayed the Architecture of the Bathroom, narrated through object, compositions and matter. Rigo’s structure, Petra’s concrete, DR’s mass and Ell’s minimal sign become the latest musings along a research and design process that began almost 50 years ago.
We’re glad to announce that Rigo, the new system designed by Patricia Urquiola for Agape, thanks to its groundbreakingly new and architectural way of re-thinking the bathroom composition, has won the Archiproducts Design Award 2019 in the Bathroom category.
