The “Rilievi” collection by Cedit – Ceramiche d’Italia has received a new prestigious recognition, the iF Design AWARD 2019, one of the most important international product design awards in the world, which is annually bestowed by a panel of industry experts.

The series designed by Zaven | Enrica Cavarzan & Marco Zavagno (awarded in the “Product” section of the “Textiles / Wall / Floor” category) was selected from 6,375 products from 52 countries by 67 design experts. It was singled out for its aesthetic characteristics, innovative content, versatility, functionality, environmental impact – from the production stage to its disposal –, and other specific qualities highlighted by the jury.

Previewed at the 2018 Fuorisalone, “Rilievi” collection overturns the traditional rules of ceramic tile creation: three-dimensional elements
with different geometric forms and colours decorate the large slabs by Cedit, transforming walls and spaces into imaginative scenarios that constitute real works of art.

“Rilievi” is the outcome of work to transform the two-dimensional sign into volume, which the two designers have been pursuing for some time. The collection plays on the modular repetition of a three-dimensional element that is always arranged in a different way. It is an authentic sculptural project that combines the excellence of craftsmanship with the qualities of industrial production.

The iF DESIGN AWARD was introduced in 1953 and is annually awarded by the iF International Forum Design, the world’s oldest design organization, based in Hannover. This important recognition joins the impressive array of awards that “Rilievi” has received in less than a year since its presentation: the Good Design Awards (received in January), the nomination for the EDIDA – Elle Deco International Design Awards, the Archiproducts Design Awards 2018 and the NYCxDESIGN Award.
