ADI-FAD, FAD's Industrial Design Association, launches a new edition of the Delta Awards. These international awards for industrial design, a benchmark in their field since their creation in 1961, are usually a biennial event. In 2012 however, they will be incorporated once more to the programme of FADfest, the great design festival which will take place in Barcelona between June 26 and July 14th.

The selected products will be included in the Delta Awards Catalogue 2012 and will feature in the exhibition “The best design of the year”, a presentation of winning and shortlisted projects of the various prizes awarded by FAD's design associations.
