E1 Prima is to take part in the XXVII Compasso d’Oro, the oldest and most authoritative world design award. For the occasion, the international jury, called upon to consider all the candidate products for the coveted award, has been able to see a special version of Eagle One Prima, designed by Giulio Cappellini, the designer and ambassador of Italian creative excellence in the world. The special version has been given the name Black Out, “all black for the Victoria Arduino E1 Prima – states Giulio Cappellini – in alternating gloss and matt finishes that emphasise the rounded, timeless forms of this object.
Prima’s purity of design opens up to highly differing interpretations, ranging from nostalgic to hyper-contemporary, as in the case of Black Out. This is a product that is beautiful both to look at and to use. It’s essential, concise and expressed in a colour that, along with white, has defined and recounted the objects that have made the history of design”.
E1 Prima Black Out and all the candidate design products for the XXVII Compasso d’Oro Award, will be displayed in a special exhibition to be opened at the ADI Design Museum on 20 June and which will run until 11 September 2022.
