Entries for the eighth edition of the ADA 2023, sponsored by Archiproducts, are officially open.
Brands can apply and compete for the title of winner. A prestigious and diverse international jury of over 40 of the most influential names in global creativity will judge the entries.
The longlist of entries for the final stage of the Award will be announced in October, and the winners will be revealed in November.
The jury for this year’s ADA Awards, organised by Archiproducts to honour outstanding global design, includes South Tyrolean architect Hannes Peer. Although originally from Bolzano, Peer has made Milan his home and is recognised as an architect and multidisciplinary artist who embraces eclecticism as his defining characteristic.
Peer’s unmistakable style revolves around a strong iconographic identity derived from his relentless exploration of colours, materials and the fusion of different artistic languages and disciplines. The interiors he creates, whether for residential, retail, hotel or office projects, are true palimpsests, reflecting different eras and atmospheres, enriched by sophisticated references.
Influenced by icons such as Sottsass, Mollino, Gabriella Crespi, Portaluppi and Nanda Vigo, Peer skilfully combines the pioneering experiments of the 1960s and 1970s with the rebellious spirit of his contemporaries, especially Rem Koolhaas. Hannes Peer firmly believes that Sottsass’s words, “design is an exercise in architecture“, reflect his design philosophy.
