The products selected for this year's ADI Design Index - which selects the best of Italian design to be put into production each year - are currently on show in the exhibition Design|Opera at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, which runs until November 3.

Consorzio Pane di Altamura - Workshop paper by Nico Polidori, Ioana Popescu and Tommaso Priore

ADI Design Index is the publication of ADI, the Italian Association for Industrial Design. The selections are made by the ADI Design Permanent Observatory, a jury composed of 200 experts. This year is the third in the three-year cycle that collects the products that may participate in the next Compasso D’Oro Award. Created in 1954, this is the most prestigious acknowledgment of quality for Italian design products.

Every three years the international jury of the Compasso d’Oro Award chooses products to award exclusively from the ones that were published in the previous three ADI Design Indexes.
