The Red Dot Award 2019 has been awarded to CEDIT (Ceramiche d’Italia), a Florim Group brand, for their Rilievi collection. This is a prestigious and historic global recognition awarded annually to the most original and interesting products in terms of design and innovation.

Appreciated for its high design quality, the collection designed by Zaven | Enrica Cavarzan & Marco Zavagno (awarded in the product design category) breaks the traditional rules of ceramic: Three-dimensional elements with different geometrical patterns and colours decorate the large CEDIT slabs, transforming the walls and spaces into truly scenic compositions.

The meaning behind Rilievi
Rilievi is the outcome of work to transform the two-dimensional sign into volume, which the two designers have been pursuing for some time. Previewed at the 2018 Milano Design Week, this series plays on the modular repetition of a three-dimensional element that is always arranged in a different way. It is an authentic sculptural project on large ceramic surfaces that combines the excellence of craftsmanship with the qualities of industrial production, two of the CEDIT brand’s core values.

The prestigious Red Dot Award joins the numerous awards that the collection has received since last April. Rilievi has won the Archiproducts Design Award (2018), the NYCxDESIGN Award (2018), the Good Design Award (2019) and the iF Design Award (2019). It has also been nominated for the EDIDA – Elle Deco International Design Awards (2019).
