The winners of Compasso d’Oro 2016

Established in 1954, ADI Compasso d’Oro Award is the oldest and most influential international design award.

The Compasso d’Oro is awarded on the basis of a pre-selection made by ADI Permanent Observatory of Design, consisting of a commission of experts, designers, critics, historians, specialized journalists, ADI members or external to it, all continuously engaged in collecting information year after year, and in valuing and selecting the best products that may be published on the ADI Design Index.

The XXIV ADI Compasso d’Oro exhibition takes place in Milan with 237 design products from every category, on display in the courtyard and the halls of the historic building Palazzo Isimbardi.
