LAB 03 BY KOS WINS THE 2011 COMPASSO D'ORO ADI INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AWARD
The International Jury of the XXII Compasso d'Oro has awarded the 2011 Compasso D'Oro ADI to the Lab 03 washbasin, designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba.
Established in 1954, The Compasso d'Oro Industrial Design Award is the oldest and most authoritative design award in the world. An International Jury examined the products recommended in the three latest annual editions of the ADI Design Index (2008, 2009 and 2010), and awarded 19 Compasso d'Oro prizes and 77 Honourable Mentions out of the 450 pre-selected projects.
Lab 03 is a unique, ground-breaking project in our industry. For the first time, a free-standing washbasin has been designed to incorporate a towel rail. Its distinctive design – curves and joints, full and void spaces – lends this product a monolithic appeal. Sinuous and solid, Lab 03 is a veritable landmark of architectural design.
Together with other projects selected by ADI over the last three years, Lab 03 is currently starring at a major Exhibition organised at the Pelanda spaces of Rome's Museo Macro. The product will also become a permanent feature of the Historical Collection of Compasso d'Oro, housed by Fondazione Adi.
