A total of 549 projects and a single message: the most outstanding design of the year. This is the essence of the great exhibition staged by the FADfest, the festival of all design. A showcase of what the efforts of professionals and businesses in all the disciplines and practices of design have yielded. An indispensable barometer of the here and now. The landscape of our creativity.
The “Best Design of the Year” exhibition presents the shortlisted and prize-winning works of all the prizes awarded by the FAD and its associations in the different spheres of design. Visitors will find the best projects in architecture and interior decoration, industrial design, graphic design, visual communication, advertising, arts and crafts, paratheatrical arts, urban transformation processes, image and fashion. 549 projects apportioned as follows:
FAD Awards to Architecture and Interior Design: 74 works
Delta Awards and ADI Medals to Industrial Design: 57 works
Laus Awards to Graphic Design and Visual Communication: 360 works
FAD Sebastià Gasch Awards to Paratheatrical Arts: 11 spectacles, activities and artists
MODAFAD Awards to Fashion Design: 10 looks
ArtFAD Awards to Art and the Crafts: 34 works

In its third edition the exhibition comes to the Disseny Hub Barcelona and invades the vestibule of the building and the spaces that surround it. The FAD thus premieres what will be its new headquarters. A comprehensive demonstration of one of the most important values that the FAD will bring to this new facility: the capacity to each year identify and recognise excellence in all the spheres of design.
