Shot during the 2020 summer in the gardens of the Agape headquarters and two private residences in the heart of Mantua. The shots by Andrea Ferrari and Maurizio Zatachetto, the graphics by Roberto Barazzuol and the illustrations by Marta Lonardi, present the Outdoor Collection consisting in more than 90 items, organized into 5 categories.
The catalogue, complete with a technical section for each product and detailed description of finishes and materials, debuts in a new larger layout that allows for a better expression of the high quality photography within.
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.
Mutina and Studio Urquiola had chosen the Vieques bathtub and the Bjhon 1 freestanding washbasin for Casa Mutina, the first exhibition space of the Modenese company in Milan, in the Brera district. Designed by Studio Urquiola, Casa Mutina is a sophistichated homage to the traditional milanese apartment with its intimate and familiar atmospheres. The space will host not only products, but will be animated by meetings and events for enthusiasts and professionals in the sector as well. Photography by DePasquale+Maffini
The Immersion family by Neri&Hu won the 2020 NYCxDESIGN Awards in the "Bath fixtures" category.

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.
