The ADI Awards 2020 recognize 'Entre redes' and several projects of Elisava Alumni and teachers


The ADI 2020 Awards, organized by the ADI-FAD Industrial Design Association, have once again brought together the main acknowledgements in the field of product design throughout Spain.

ADI Gold Medal
Entre redes, by Amalia Puga

The ADI Gold Medal, which has been awarded since 1976 to students of product design, has been awarded to Amalia Puga, Elisava Alumni of Undergraduate Degree in Design, for her Final Degree Project Entre redes. A work that bets for the synergies between design and crafts, between tradition and innovation, from the vindication of the trade of the Galician redeiras.

The project, according to the jury, mixes a social and environmental aspect by giving a second life to a material without use; the resulting product is designed with recycled materials with the remains of ropes and threads from fishing nets, and has been woven by women. The author has thanked the help of her tutor, Salva Fàbregas, and has dedicated the award to the protagonists of the project, the women association of redeiras from A Guarda. A collective, she said, that currently struggles for the survival of their trade and represents "an extraordinary example of collaborative work between women".

ADI Culture Project Award
Understanding L'Hospitalet, by Saúl Baeza and Diego Ramos

Secondly, the ADI Culture Project Award has been awarded to Understanding L'Hospitalet, from Understanding Design, by Elisava professor Saúl Baeza and Diego Ramos. A solid and intrepid proposal, according to the jury, which puts on the map an emerging city, key in the local industrial and creative fabric, but constantly eclipsed by Barcelona. They also highlighted their intention to highlight a type of design intertwined with art and with creative processes and experimental research.

Finally, the Golden Delta Lighting Award has been for Fa Mini, by Goula/Figuera Studio, by the Elisava Alumni Pablo Figuera and Álvaro Goula, for Gofi.
