The EARL collection  has been chosen for the ADI DESIGN INDEX 2017, the selection of the best in Italian design.

Thanks to this nomination, Piaval now enters the pre-selection of the Compasso d’Oro Award, the oldest and most influential international design award, established in 1954 by a Gio Ponti’s idea in order to pick out the value and quality of the best designers and of the best Italian design companies.

The Compasso d’Oro is awarded on the basis of a pre-selection made by ADI (the Italian Association for the Industrial Design) Permanent Observatory of Design, consisting of a commission of experts, designers, critics, historians and specialized journalists. They are engaged in collecting information year after year,  and in valuing and selecting the best products or product systems, assessed in the context of different merchandise fields, in addition to the theoretical, historical and critical research and the corporate research.

The selected products are then published on the ADI Design Index yearbook.
