Until June 4, AVE will be featured in the “Thinking Factories” exhibition, that tells the stories of the 32 Compasso d’Oro award-winning products of Bergamo and Brescia, Italian Capital of Culture 2023.
Over the years, collaboration with the most renowned international designers and continuous research toward innovation has led AVE to win lots of awards, including the Compasso D’Oro, in 1979, for the first 45 mm modular switch of the Habitat Series, designed by Andries Van Onck with Hiroko Takeda. A true piece of design history through which AVE is now featured in the exhibition “Thinking Factories. Tales of Compassi d’Oro from Bergamo to Brescia”.
Hosted at the Palazzo della Ragione in Bergamo, this exhibition is aimed at highlighting the manufacturing production of the two provinces in the year of Bergamo and Brescia Italian Capital of Culture 2023. The leitmotif of the exhibition (which will also be followed by a book) is the world’s most authoritative design award, the Compasso d’Oro in a narrative that involves the 32 winning products from the Brescia and Bergamo area. The installation includes interactive paths developed to intrigue visitors and give visibility to the products.
