A GREAT DESIGN IS A BRILLIANT COLLECTION OF BEAUTIFUL IDEAS
iDEA&Associates has been recognised by ADI with Compasso d’oro – young designers in 2016 for “the Foiler “project.
Compasso d’Oro is the name of an International industrial design award originated in Italy. From 1964 it has been hosted exclusively by Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (ADI). It is the first and most recognized award in its field.
…and the Winner is… Thrilled to have won the overall design prize for Surge for Water Design with HOK and iDEA&Associates.
The design ‘Catch of the Day’ was based on traditional fishing cages, Gargoors, which had recently been banned to preserve certain species of fish from extinction. ‘Catch of the day’ re-purposes these discarded cages by transforming each into a relaxed seating element. The volume within the Gargoor is filled with plastic bottles retrieved from recycling bins. These bottles not only lend structural support but also remind us of the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling plastic waste, so they do not end up in our oceans and replace marine life.
