Compasso d’Oro ADI for Nulla and Sampei

2014, 1 December

It is always great to win a prize, but this year we won two for our Nulla and Sampei products. But not just any prize, two Compasso D’Oro ADI, Italy’s highest design accolade.
I dedicate this award to my team, to all the people who have been working for me every day for many years. It was exactly 25 years ago when I designed and manufactured my first lamps and embarked on my adventure in the design world. The lamps I make now are the same, in the soul, as the ones I made in the beginning. I am for my works to always capture feelings of mystery and unsettledness. This is the way I like them. Even Nulla e Sampei reflect this.

Thanks to everybody.
