EVE e ASTRO, presented at the Salone Internazionale del Bagno 2018, receive the German Design Award 2019, their first international acknowledgement. This year the German Design Council awarded Tubes in two categories: Eve is Winner in the „Energy“ category and Astro is Winner in the „Household“ category.
Here are the motivations of the jury, composed of about 50 experts in the design and architecture fields:
Eve – design Ludovica+Roberto Palomba„This mobile heater combines warmth and mood lighting in an unconventional design. Its rounded, bulbous shape is more reminiscent of a vase than a heater – an impression that is enhanced by its premium-quality surface. The clarity of the design is further enhanced by the fact that the functional elements are only visible when needed. The result: a highly original, almost magical object“.
Astro – design Luca Nichetto„With its elegant body resting on four graceful legs, this appliance, which combines heating and air filtration functions, has the look and feel of a classy piece of furniture – a quality underscored by the striking colour scheme. A superb product that will add a striking aesthetic grace note to any living room.“
These two awards follow other acknowledgements that the German Design Council already conferred to Tubes with Agorà (2015, Special Mention), Scaletta (2016, Winner – Bath and Wellness), Rift (2017, Special Mention) and Origami (2018, Winner – Bath and Wellness).
The German Design Award, organized by the German Design Council that has represented and supported the design industry in Germany for over 60 years, is an award allocated to companies and designers who, thanks to their projects, are deemed pioneers of design on an international scale.
