The 50’s double-faced system, designed by Garcia Cumini, has been selected by the ADI Permanent Design Observatory for publication in the 2021 ADI Design Index in the “Home Design” category, and will compete for the Compasso D’Oro, the oldest and most distinguished design award in the world.
The 2021 ADI Design Index is the second volume of the biannual series that gathers all of the products which have been pre-selected for the 2022 Compasso D’Oro Award.
The award, established in 1954 by “La Rinascente” and subsequently handed over to ADI, which has overseen every edition since 1956, is the most prestigious recognition of the production and design quality of goods, services, processes, and systems within the Italian design industry.
The recognition, which gathers together all of the winning products, has generated the biggest historic design collection in the world and was declared a “National heritage” in 2004.
All of the selected products are on display until 7 November 2021 at the ADI Design Museum in Milan.
