We are delighted to announce that Alias has won the Red Dot Design Award for the fourth time with the e la nave va sofa designed by Atelier Oï, affirming once more its key role in Made in Italy excellence. The sofa was chosen by an international panel of designers, lecturers, experts and journalists for its high-quality design and will be the main feature of a virtual exhibition during the Red Dot Design Week from 21 to 25 June.
"It is with great pleasure that we receive the Red Dot Design Award, a contemporary award in its capacity to popularise the culture of design and innovation applied to the project.To be perfectly honest, I believe the work carried out at the hands of Alias and Atelier Oï resulting in the ‘e la nave va’ project is fully deserving of this prestigious recognition.This extraordinary upholstered piece of furniture inverts the paradigms of traditional sofa architecture, exploiting the structure’s elasticity to guarantee comfort and ergonomics. It represents the culmination of a line of research that reflects Atelier Oï's constructivist approach, consistent with Alias’ DNA.”
E la nave va receives one of the world's major, leading design awards for its design quality. An award that aims to honour the exceptional quality of project engineers and manufacturers, who have been eligible for the RED DOT DESIGN AWARD since 1955 and appear in the Red Dot museum in Zollverein, Essen.
