Elica Air Design Award_Winner announcement

12 June 2015

Elica is delighted to announce the 3 winners of the “Elica Air Design Award” contest which was held on the desall platform. The site’s community, which includes over 40,000 designers, architects, interior designers and artists, was invited to dream up and design the cooker hood of the future.

Participants were asked to develop a concept of the hood for domestic use that respected the look and feel of the company while at the same time breaking through traditional boundaries, in order to arrive at a formal synthesis.

In their various imaginative versions of this futuristic hood, innovative and technological, the creative entrants drew on and reinterpreted iconic elements. They explored new features, capabilities and forms to come up with a fresh and original hood, taking into account the possibilities of mass production and saleability in the market.

314 new ideas were presented. The selection was far from easy, but finally three winning proposals were chosen: Aplós by Iwednesday, aka Tony Badu; Sliding Doors by Antonio Lanzillo; and Kalla by Elena Paoletti.

You can see the three winning ideas on the Desall blog at this link.
