ADI – Compasso d’Oro 2024, the jury awards Sanlorenzo’s SP110

Tilli Antonelli, Piero Lissoni, Bernardo Zuccon and Massimo Perotti were present on stage at the presentation of the prestigious award promoted by ADI. Until 15 September 2024 the SP110 model is on display at the ADI Design Museum

Sanlorenzo was the protagonist at the ADI Design Museum in Milan during the XXVIII edition of the Compasso d’Oro 2024 award ceremony, the authoritative world design prize established by Gio Ponti in 1954, which every year celebrates virtuous projects that combine quality, innovation and cultural impact.

Launched in 2022, the SP110 confirms Sanlorenzo‘s ability to combine tradition and innovation, offering yachts that meet the highest standards of design and technology and respond to the growing need for sustainability in the nautical sector. The balance of design, sustainability and performance is the result of collaboration with high-profile experts and creatives: Bernardo Zuccon for exterior design, Tilli Antonelli for product development, Marco Arnaboldi for the hull and Piero Lissoni for the interiors.

The prize was awarded to Sanlorenzo’s SP110, an open coupé that combines unmistakable Made in Italy design, high performance and attention to sustainability. The Compasso d’Oro, in fact, does not simply reward the most popular or most beautiful objects, but those that best represent the idea of Made in Italy design, making a careful and reasoned selection, which in seventy years of history has awarded just over 370 prizes, reflecting the prestige that the award intends to represent in the world.

The first in the ‘Smart Performance’ range, the SP110 offers high performance and energy efficiency through the use of fractional propulsion, comprising three motors. The energy recovery system, moreover, includes high-efficiency solar panels and lithium batteries, which allow powering the hôtellerie functions without the use of generators. The exterior design, by Zuccon International Project, features aerodynamic shapes and a distinctive livery. The interiors, designed by Piero Lissoni, follow an elegant minimalism, using lightened materials such as lava stone, and make the most of the ample spaces on board, which are designed to favour conviviality and privacy, with innovative solutions such as the enlarged sun deck and the equipped bow dinette.

And it is precisely because of its avant-garde features that the international jury, through a scientific selection process lasting two years and involving a permanent multidisciplinary observatory of around 150 experts, decided to award the hull the Compasso d’Oro. As stated in the motivations, the SP110 represents more than just a boat as it “interprets the idea of a floating home through new proportions, a new relationship between transparent and blind surfaces, and new living solutions. A boat that renews the production process in a strategic sector, through careful research into the factors of sustainability in construction and use”.
