Isola Design Awards Trophy
Each year, we collaborate with a different artist to craft a unique trophy that captures the spirit of our design philosophy. From established artists to up-and-coming talents, each one brings their unique vision and creativity to the project, resulting in a stunning and unforgettable trophy that embodies the very best of design.
Francesco Pace, the founder of Tellurico, a multidisciplinary design studio, will design this year's award. With a Master of Contextual Design from the Design Academy of Eindhoven, Francesco's practice focuses on investigating alternative solutions through the study of folklore and the relationship between crafts and the environment.

His work intertwines the historical, geological, and social aspects of humankind with the uniqueness and simplicity of everyday life.

Francesco has been nominated as one of the Best Italian Designers Under 40 by Platform Magazine in 2020, won the prestigious Officine Saffi Awards in 2021 with his project Telluride, and has been listed among the Next Pure Talent of 2022 by Elle Decor.

He has presented his works in various international venues, including the Biennale of Architecture in Venice, and the Triennale di Milano. Francesco is based in the Netherlands and has received commissions from different galleries such as Emma Scully Gallery New York, Side-Gallery in Barcelona, and Mint London.
