“Dressing” the house like a tailored suit is the aim of the Wallover® System, developed by Caccaro in collaboration with Monica Graffeo.
Sistema Wallover® interprets and enriches domestic walls, transforming them into “containment works” with an architectural cut. Its modules are freely composed to create infinite interpretations of space. Pillars, available full-height or made-to-measure, also double-sided and installable in the center of the room, walls equipped with TVs for the living room, made up of floor-standing or suspended base units, which include design elements, all this makes the domestic environment as well as functional, elegant and highly distinctive.
In addition to being an innovative furnishing system, Wallover® respects the highest standards of quality and sustainability: all the particle board panels are in fact CARB2 certified, an extremely demanding standard which minimizes the formaldehyde content to protect the consumer, of company employees and the environment.
Furthermore, the IT optimization of the cutting procedures minimizes material waste and the just in time organization guarantees the use of production materials only when the order arrives. To date, the packaging of the bulkier elements is entirely in cardboard and since 2002 Caccaro has only used water-based painting cycles, which almost completely eliminate the use of chemical solvents.
For this reason Wallover® was selected to be included in the ADI Design Index which, created in 2000 to identify quality in all sectors of Italian production, represents the pre-selection for the Compasso d’Oro, which includes the best excellences of “Made in Italy” design and today represents the most important recognition in the world of design.
Born in 1954 from an idea by Gio Ponti, and initially sponsored by the La Rinascente warehouses, since 1958 the award has been entrusted to ADI which has since then taken care of its organization and manages the historical collection through its own Foundation, established in 2001 and which since May 2021 has found its new home in the ADI Design Museum in Milan: an abandoned space from the 1930s, which was a horse-drawn tram depot and an electricity distribution plant, and which today houses one of the largest museums of Europe dedicated to design.
