6 reconocimientos FAD para el Design y las Artes Visuales del IED Barcelona LAUS Oro


14 June 2024

The awards demonstrate the creativity and innovation emerging from the School’s classrooms

In an incredible week to remember, the high level of creativity and innovation of the proposals emerging from the Design and Visual Arts schools of IED Barcelona were recognised on six occasions by design professionals and companies linked to the FAD association (Fostering Arts and Design).

On 11 June, at the grand awards ceremony of the FAD Architecture and Interior Design Awards, driven by ARQUIN-FAD, IED Barcelona won the Habitácola Award for Best Educational Centre, as the education institution with the highest number of proposals selected in this competition: four projects among the eleven finalists.

The jury highlighted “the diversity of approaches from the School, both conceptual and formal, which denotes a great capacity to lead students along a path of learning that has allowed them to freely express their concerns as creators.”

The ADG Laus Awards for Graphic Design and Visual Communication, presented at a gala on 12 June, awarded four prizes to final degree projects from IED Barcelona:

A Gold Laus to “Unwoven memories” by Thinh Truong in the Digital category. This work translates the memories of the objects in Colonia Güell into a new form of binary “language” that is made visible through textile modules, so that the city can “weave” its own history this time around.

And three Bronze Laus to:

  •  “Noc noc” by Katherine Svoboda (Audiovisual category). An audiovisual installation that explains the relationship between architecture, sound and society. Sculptures that generate sound and bring us closer to places that sight alone cannot reach, transforming our experience of modernism.
  • “Olskins” by Maria Terekhova (Branding category). A minimalist design with bold contrasts of colour combined with photos that help an all-gender underwear brand communicate its commitment to inclusivity and accessibility. It incorporates trends with 3D images that add a sense of modernity.
  • “Mórfosis” by Camila Kotliarsky (Advertising category). A funeral parlour of life that celebrates and helps people going through “little everyday deaths” to overcome them with understanding, resilience and humour, by way of rituals. The aim is to transmute in life and not take it so seriously.

Last but not least, on 13 June, the winners of the ADI Awards for Industrial Design and Design Culture were announced. “Plastic Nostrum” by Product Design alumnus Mina Barchi won the Opinion ADI Medal, chosen by ADI-FAD members.

Congratulations to all!
