"The best design of the year" is the annual FAD exhibition that includes the 500 most outstanding products and projects of the year in industrial design, graphic design and visual communication, architecture and interior design. This year the exhibition is organized in three thematic routes aligned with the principles of the New European Bauhaus: Beauty, Sustainability and Inclusivity, as well as one focused on Technological Innovation.

The three routes of "The best design of the year"

  • Beauty: original projects that go beyond their function or instrumental nature, enrich the aesthetic experience and stand out for their formal qualities.
  • Sustainability: on this tour you can see projects that are respectful of the environment and biodiversity that promote circularity and the reduction of pollution.
  • Inclusivity: an itinerary to discover projects that promote accessibility and diversity through dialogue between cultures, disciplines, genders and ages.
  • Technological innovation: the tour with projects that explore the possibilities of technology, materials and new processes and creation techniques.
