17/7 Barcelona, capital of design on the occasion of the FADfest’s third edition

The FADfest is the festival of industrial design, graphic design and visual communication, architecture and interior design, fashion, art and craftwork that has taken place in HUB Barcelona Design Museum, from 25th June until 11th July, with the aim of bringing design to everyone.

For two intense days, Barcelona had a date with the world of design in all its forms, through exhibitions, awards, a conference, a cinema sequence, debates, conferences, festive activities and social networks. A showcase organized by the FAD association (Arts and Design Promotion), who has discovered the best ideas of the year, accomplished by professionals and companies.

In this direction, we should point out some prizes with fifty years of history, as Laus Awards for graphic design and visual communication, Delta Prizes for Industrial Design or FAD Awards for Architecture and Interior Design.

In its 2013 edition, from the Hotel Omm, the design hotel in Barcelona, it’s a pleasure to highlight the awards given to two of our suppliers. In one hand, the company Santa&Cole, specialist in urban furniture design and exterior lighting, has been awarded with the Gold Delta for the best Spanish industrial design. On the other hand, the Bronze Laus for the best graphic design and visual communication has been given to the study of graphic design and art direction Esiete, creator of the Hotel Omm’s website.

Integrated within the Barcelona Design Festival, the event FADfest has a transversal vocation, counting on the active support of institutions and companies. After this great event, the 550 works of the winners and finalists of the different prizes, will be exposed at the “FADexpo: the best design of the year”, available at the HUB until early autumn.
