The innovative Arteferro System, designed, manufactured, and distributed by Gonzato Group, has been selected by the ADI Permanent Design Observatory to be included in the prestigious ADI Design Index 2023. This annual publication gathers the best of Italian design. The selection was officially presented yesterday during a press conference held at the Museum of Design in Milan.
In addition to being a mandatory preselection for the Compasso d’Oro Award – the most prestigious recognition of productive and design quality in Italian goods, services, processes, and systems since 1956 – ADI Design Index is also an annual selection for the National Innovation Award, endorsed by the Presidency of the Republic. This award is given each year to a significant product in terms of innovation, identified among those featured in ADI Design Index.
Products included in the annual publication are chosen by the ADI Observatory based on rigorous and specific criteria: originality, functional and typological innovation, adopted production processes, materials used, and formal synthesis. All of these characteristics are encompassed by the Arteferro System.
Arteferro System is indeed an innovative system for creating railings, balconies, and fences, combining the beauty of semi-finished iron with the convenience of a ready-made module complete with everything needed for its assembly. Available in 24 different models and finishes for maximum personalization, Arteferro System is certified in accordance with the strictest regulations, ensuring complete safety of use. Comprising the upright and the infill panel, it also features an innovative and patented connection clamp that doesn’t require screws. This simplifies and speeds up the work of professionals.
Following the presentation of the selected products, an exhibition was inaugurated showcasing the finalist products, including three different models of Arteferro System. The exhibition will be open for visitors in Milan until November 19 and in Rome from November 28 to December 3 at the WeGill Space.
