The Design Innovation Award was established by the Italian Marine Industry Association and I Saloni Nautici with the aim of supporting excellence throughout the yachting industry and encouraging innovation by promoting exhibitors through their latest designs.

Winners across nine award categories were selected by an independent Jury made up of national and international experts from a variety of sectors – professional designers, industry journalists, university researchers, shipowners, and representatives of industry bodies and institutions – allowing for a truly transversal vision and evaluation.

In identifying the winners, the Award highlights the designers’ and manufacturers’ ability to conceive and implement design choices, research, innovation and sustainability.
