We are proud to report that the International Jury of the 23rd ADI (Association for Industrial Design) Compasso d’Oro Award, the most authoritative and historic design award in the world, has conferred the ADI Compasso d’Oro Mention of Honour upon our Levante series, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni. The official ceremony took place on 28 May at the former Ansaldo site in Milan, where all the award-winning products were on display.
The Levante project came about from research into a new design language that Rodolfo Dordoni has been conducting with the company, which is clearly legible in the mixer for washbasin. The peculiarity that characterises it is the relationship between the lever and the tap body. We have worked on the interpenetration of the two volumes, investigating a possible alternative to the usual overlap of one on the other. The design is harmonised by the sharing of lines, softness and corner rounding between the lever and the spout that directs the water flowa.
