ADI Design Index opened its exhibition on October 27th in Milan. The selection of the best Italian design is presented every year by the ADI Permanent Design Observatory, which completes the pre-selection for the next Compasso d'Oro Award. The Lego low table and console designed by Draga & Aurel for Visionnaire has been selected for the ADI Design Index 2021.

The word Lego has a double meaning in Italian, 'to join, to link' but it also recalls the famous game that brought together the childhood of countless children, including that of the designers, giving the joy of being able to build something real, from a tower to a train. Hence the choice of this name for the low tables and the console which are the result of the embrace of geometric shapes, perfect together but harmonious and solid even separated. The main materials for these pieces are concrete eroded by sea salt and metal elements.

The ADI Design Index 2021 is the second volume of the biennial award that brings together the products shortlisted for the ADI Compasso d'Oro 2022 Award. The award, created in 1954 by "La Rinascente" and then donated to ADI, is the most prestigious recognition of the production and design quality of goods, services, processes and systems of Italian design. The award, which gathers together the award-winning products, has generated the largest historical design collection, declared in 2004 as a 'good of national interest'.
