Brembo has won the ADI Compasso d’Oro Award for its Formula E brake caliper.
The Compasso d’Oro prize was presented to Alberto Bombassei, president of Brembo, during the award ceremony held at the ADI Design Museum in Milan.
Now in its 26th edition, the Compasso d’Oro is organised every two years by ADI (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale), the industrial design association that for over 60 years has been selecting and celebrating the best ‘Made in Italy’ creations.
Alberto Bombassei said: “The award is an acknowledgement of Brembo’s ability to bring Italian expertise to the highest levels: excellence that combines creativity, design and technology, and that allows us to manufacture products that bring together aesthetics and a love of beauty, as well as outstanding quality.
“Our culture has always led us to create brakes with a distinctive design, that remain forerunners of technical evolution in our sector. This award gives new impetus to our passion: racing towards the future but knowing how to brake.”
The Brembo Formula E brake caliper is a four-piston aluminium alloy monobloc caliper that combines performance and lightness with uncompromising shape. Brembo says it is an industrial product that even under extreme competitive conditions never loses its characteristics, dynamic and sporty aesthetics.
The Formula E caliper earned Brembo its second ADI Compasso d’Oro, with the first one awarded in 2004 for the Brembo CCM, the carbon ceramic braking system for road cars.
