ADI Design Index 2013
ADI Design Index is the annual publication of the Association for Industrial Design, which groups together the best Italian design put into production and chosen by the Permanent Observatory of Design ADI. The selection includes products or product systems for each product category, theoretical and critical research, and process or business research applied to design.
Once again, the innovative design of the volume bears the signature of the studio Zup Associati: a layout reliant on QR interactive codes for consulting the book, allowing new opportunities for communication for the benefit of all those selected. And then, infographics, images, texts and reasoned contributions from Luisa Bocchietto, Arturo Dell’Acqua Bellavitis, Valerio Castronovo, Frida Doveil, Antonio Calabrò.
“Design is vision. Design imagines things, spaces, strategies and then acts to create a better world.” These are the words of Luisa Bocchietto, president of ADI.
In this light ADI is therefore presented as a sort of little social experiment, a field of intellectual reflection related to material culture. In short, a place, but also a precious opportunity to think, imagine and design. It is that same visionary and revolutionary spirit of Italian design we find in ADI Design Index.
ADI Design Index is published by Corraini Edizioni, as are ADI XXII Compasso d’Oro 2011, ADI Targa Giovani 2011, ADI Design Index 2011 and ADI Design Index 2012.
