2013 / CLIENT:
“Libra” is the name given to a revolutionary electronic door opening system designed by UDESIGN, entirely conceived and manufactured in Italy by the ISEO Group.
Selected by ADI-Design for the “Design of Materials and Components” section and awarded with the “Honorable Mention” 2014, it is characterized by the innovative opening of accesses that no longer takes place through traditional mechanical keys but thanks to different devices modern and innovative, such as cards or virtual credentials also conveyed by mobile phone.
Each device can be enabled or disabled for access in different days and times, and the system also keeps track of any unauthorized opening attempt, giving the system greater security and maximum flexibility. The design is neutral, elegant and can be versioned in countless configurations.
In the design phase, particular attention was paid to the goal of reducing the environmental impact of electronic components, also providing for the possibility of easily dividing the different materials to favor an almost total recyclability of the product at the end of its life.
Overall, “Libra” fully responds to the challenges that characterize the horizon of Italian industrial design, as described in the presentation of the ADI Design INDEX catalog: a project attentive to people, the environment, the challenges of technological innovation and real needs of the user, the true “ethical and economic sustainability”.
