The second edition of NABA Design Award, an event created by Claudio Larcher, NABA Design Area Leader, aiming to celebrate and decorate the best design projects, took place 6th October inside NABA campus in Milan.
The Best Project of the year prize was won by the students Valentina Cerra e Chiara Corbani with their work “Futuro semplice”, a project-based research to imagine “The Job Factory”, right at the hearth of Milan, to design, experiment and create a brand new thought-community born within an experiential journey. The award was enriched by a special prize: a ConceptD workstation, the new line of products dedicated to creators and recently launched by Acer, leading brand in the ICT sector, that was delivered to the students during the ceremony by Donato Medici, NABA Managing Director.
