XXVII Compasso d'Oro ADI: the winners of the 2022 edition awarded
Development - sustainable - responsible: these are the three key concepts that ADI indicates as fundamental for contemporary design and which have guided the selection of the winners of the XXVII edition of the Compasso d'Oro. During the award ceremony, which took place last June 20 for the first time at the headquarters of the ADI Design Museum in Milan, ADI president Luciano Galimberti underlined that "Italian design must be understood as a pool of proposals and solutions to the problems of living, with all the limits that a proposal can have, but also with all the strength and courage of those who take a stand ".


The award ceremony of the XXVII Compasso d'Oro

The XXVII Compasso d'Oro therefore intended to reward attention to sustainability and responsible development by highlighting them in its selection with prizes and honorable mentions. The use of matter and energy, physical and cultural durability of products, ease of recycling of components and materials are essential objectives today. The jury was made up of Annachiara Sacchi, president, architects Mario Cucinella and Mirko Zardini, university professor Stefano Micelli and critics, art curator and teacher Cloe Piccoli.

20 Compassi d'Oro awards were awarded to as many products and delivered to designers and manufacturers.To these awards were added the Compassi d'Oro for Lifetime Achievement, awarded by a joint commission formed by ADI and Fondazione ADI, nine Italian and three international personalities considered important references for the evolution of the world of design and three long-selling products, design successes on the market with a decade-long career. In addition to the awards, 25 Honorable Mentions were awarded to products chosen for their quality of use and sustainability. For the Targa Giovani, the recognition reserved for projects developed by students during their training, three Awards and nine Certificates were awarded.


XXVII Compasso d'Oro: the winners

Among the winning projects we find some more linked to the world of furniture and the home and other protagonists of other sectors.

The refined modular Belt lighting system, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Flos, has been awarded, which uses a differently composed leather strip (hence the name) which integrates a LED. As indicated by the jury, the award goes to a "brand new leather and LED lighting system with an interesting environmental dimension".

The prestigious recognition also went to Ostuni di Saib, a material and versatile finish capable of restoring the artisanal warmth of the hand-made through a surface that is inspired by the lime and the spatulated plasters typical of the historic centers of the Mediterranean. The aesthetic performance of SAIB panels is combined with a sustainable production process based on the recovery, reuse and regeneration of wood at the end of its life.

The Plato chair by Jasper Morrison for Magis, essential and rigorous, is made of aluminum and therefore destined for a long life, reducing the environmental impact.

The Compasso d'Oro also goes to Ordine of Fabita, a project by Adriano Design, an electric induction cooking plate to hang on the wall, which, according to the jury, is "a cooking idea that interprets a new ecological and sustainable way of living". Øg Zero Gravity by Secco Sistemi is a magnetic leavening sliding door system also suitable for large doors, which are very easy to open and close. Klipper is a sound-absorbing system in fabric by Felicia Arvid for Caimi Brevetti that exploits the particular and multiple folds to achieve the purpose and also offer a three-dimensional decorative motif.

Among the other winning projects we want to point out we also find the LAMBROgio tricycle by Makio Usuike & Co. for Repower awarded for the "brilliant redefinition of traditional light vehicles for a new urban electric mobility for the transport of people and the delivery of goods", Mia , the robotic hand of Elastico Disegno for Prensilia and the diving mask transformed into an EasyCovid-19 respirator by Cristian Fracassi and Alessandro Romaioli for Isinnova.
