The Joint Committee of the ADI and the Fondazione ADI Collezione Compasso d’Oro has awarded the Compasso d’Oro Award to Italian designer, architect and art director Piero Lissoni. for his career as an undisputed protagonist of Italian design culture. Each year, the prize is awarded to various national and international personalities who have distinguished themselves in the planning sphere.

The motivations of the jury were the following, “A career marked by modernism, a career path consisting of cohesion and method, able to offer reassuring and measured gazes combined with thrilling poetics. A career that has known how to explore and combine different project disciplines, rendering to us the idea of the unitary nature of creative action."

On the same evening, the Jury of the 28th edition of the award also assigned a Compasso d’Oro to the 'SP110' project, the open coupé yacht realised by Sanlorenzo Yatchs, the interior design of which is done by Lissoni & Partners. The project team also includes Bernardo Zuccon for the exteriors, Tilli Antonelli for product development at Sanlorenzo and Marco Arnaboldi for the hull project.
