The best ecodesign products of Catalonia come to the Disseny Hub

The month of October saw the presentation of the 2021 Catalonia Ecodesign Prizes, a series of awards that recognise products, development initiatives and proposals by students which are designed to improve their environmental impact throughout their life cycle and their contribution to the circular economy.

The presentation ceremony was held in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, and later the exhibition was inaugurated, displaying the winning entries and those which received a special mention. This exhibition will travel to the Disseny Hub Barcelona on 17 December and can be visited in the ‘E‘ space until 18 January. Bur before this, the ADI-FAD will dedicate the last session of the year of the ADI Making Of... series of conferences to the winners of these prizes, who will participate in them to speak about the process of design and manufacture of four products and projects.

This year’s edition received 131 projects. In the “Product” category the prize was for ‘Llosa Filtrant’ Drainage Paving, entered by Breinco, an innovating paving solution with a high percentage of permeability which improves water management, minimises erosion and increases pedestrians’ comfort.

The prize in the “Product in Development” category was for the GS7018 Sustainable Washing Machine presented by Girbau, SA, an ergonomic product with an intuitive interface, high efficiency and circularity of resources which optimises the consumption of energy, water and chemical products.

In the “Young Design” category the prize was for the Des-Embolcall (‘Un-Packaging’) project, entered by Júlia Farriol of ELISAVA, a system of reusable packagings in standardised formats designed to improve the distribution chain, with twofold functionality: transporting the goods from the point of extraction to the point of sale and displaying them without changing the packaging.
