Shortlisted products for the Delta Awards, the celebrated industrial design prizes from Spain.
The Spanish association supporting design and architecture FAD has unveiled the 53 selected projects for the 37th edition of the Delta Awards, having as a commitment to promote the recognition of those innovative industrial design products that opt for a conceptual renovation, bring environmental consciousness and at the same time are exemplary models in terms of design and manufacturing quality.
The Delta Awards are promoted by ADI-FAD, the industrial design FAD branch. In this edition the jury in charge of selecting the Gold and Silver Delta Awards, as well as the ADI Medal to the best final degree, masters or postgraduate projects, includes Eugeni Quitllet, Catalan designer that started his career alongside Philippe Starck now based with his own design studio in Barcelona; Jorge Díez, an expert in automotive design currently head of exterior design at SEAT; Chris Lefteri, a master professional in materials and their application in design; Joaquim Ruiz Millet, architect, editor and gallery owner who also donated some pieces to the Barcelona Museum of Design collection; Inga Sempé, celebrated french furniture and lighting designer; Johannes Carlström, co-founder and designer at Note Design Studio, one of the most influential studios in Scandinavia; and Gracia Cardona, co-founder and editor in chief of the online publication diarioDESIGN.
The products selected belong to a wide range of categories: products for the people, for the habitat, for the workspace, for outdoors and even for mobility. For this reason amongst the long list of finalists there are from lamps to baby high chairs.
