The ADI Design Index selection is carried out, following a rigorous work method and exclusive merit criteria, by the ADI Permanent Observatory of Design, consisting of over 100 experts, organized in commissions divided by territory, theme and final selection. In particular, the quality, intelligence, competence, and precision of the projects are evaluated, but also the tendency to common good and beauty, as well as a vision for sustainable and responsible development.

The characteristics of the Nature Sauna published in the 2020 ADI Design Index

Nature Sauna is the outdoor Finnish sauna where construction, man and nature are fused together in a completely immersive experience with the surrounding environment.
Realized in spruce from the Fiemme Valley, this cabin is a celebration of the evolution of materials in contact with the outside. Wear, environment and the passing of time make Nature Sauna a unique product that is never standardized.
Both the structure and the internal and external cladding are in spruce of the Fiemme Valley, in its black wax version or in its thermo-treated fair version. The main façade and the entry door are glass, and the covering is in plate. The modular construction, in three different sizes, reduces the dimensions for transport.
