The TechnoAlpin’s T60 design continues to build consensus
At the beginning of 2009, the important Italian magazine "Abitare" selected the T60 as one of 45 excellent Italian products in the field of design. Now the triumphant march of TechnoAlpin's new snow gun continues: on 1 July, the T60 was included in the ADI Design Index 2008, a list of the best Italian design products, during the presentation held in Milan at the Salone d'onore at the Triennale.
Recommendation for inclusion in the list is carried out by the Permanent Design Observatory, an international commission of experts, consisting of critics, historians, designers, and specialised journalists. Just to be included in the index is an important acknowledgement. Additionally, it represents pre-selection for the prestigious Compasso d'Oro, the most important Italian design award, which is awarded every three years. The next Compasso d'Oro is in 2011, the XXII in its history. The ADI foundation was created in 2001, to promote "the cultural, intellectual, material, and intangible legacy of the Compasso d'Oro award, as well as all of the other events aimed at recognising and supporting Italian design."
The T60 is the work of MM Design. In this way Alex Terzariol's creative has demonstrated, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that technological perfection can also be beautiful and self-confident. MM Design's offices are located in Bressanone (Alto Adige) and in addition to TechnoAlpin, they work with other important companies such as Burton, Hoppe, Illy, and Salewa.
