Peroni Nastro Azzuro marked the event with the collaboration with SUPERFUTUREDESIGN* and Alias. The contest received an impressive number of submissions from all over the region. From modular concepts to everyday tools, the participants displayed creative pieces reflecting ‘The Italian Way’ style with a mix of conviviality and legendary hospitality.

The awards event took place during Dubai Design Week; on November 14th at Molecule in the Dubai Design District and was attended by internationally known figures, creative designers and experts from the region.
To highlight the innovative and creative focus in the region, the event was also aimed to network the designers of the UAE. The organizer, Peroni Nastro Azzurro has always been linked to designs, including the fashion collaborations with Vogue Italia and Antonio Berardi, and product design with Alessi, so launching the second edition in the region was naturally the next step.
