La San Marco V6 selected by ADI Design Index

V6 keeps surprising: the revolutionary double-sided lever coffee machine by La San Marco conceived in partnership with Bonetto Design was selected by ADI Design Permanent Observatory to be published within the ADI Design Index 2019. 

ADI Design Index celebrates the best of Italian industrial design by selecting a number of products or systems which will take part in the ADI Compasso d’Oro 2020 awards, the most prestigious international design recognition. ADI’s selection criteria include design and innovation, production processes, shape and material selection as well as sustainability and social value. 

“We are proud of this recognition” says Roberto Nocera, General Director of La San Marco. “It is a prestigious acknowledgement of V6’s great qualities, not only in terms of technology, design and safety standards, but also of consumer’s experience. V6 puts the art of coffee-making back in the spotlight and is an invitation to rediscover the café as a place to socialise, meet and exchange ideas”. 

The remarkable, unique design by Bonetto Design is inspired by the motor sports world of the 1960s and '70s. “We focused on combining the concepts of elegance, purity, precision, and mechanical and automotive traditions,” explains Marco Bonetto. “The lines are sculpted and dominant, but at the same time, they maintain a certain lightness thanks to the various transparent windows, in a perfect balance of weight”.
