Think to do, Reflect to create… this is how an olive log is transformed into a trophy with an iconic cut and a Mediterranean scent. Made entirely by hand by our artisans, it aims to provide an example of quality and recognition for the projects that will be selected for the first Sardinia Design Award 2022. Joining the competition not only requires passion and curiosity, but also the knowledge of techniques and materials to be used for each proposal. It means experimenting its ductility and its performance for any external and extraneous strain or condition, calculating the risk factors to avoid solutions that cannot be achieved or that could compromise the final result. It means engaging with the artisans we have interviewed and who will be available for any questions and feedback. Only by being true to this process, we can give shape to ideas.
