La Isla, designed by the Swedish studio NOTE for Sancal, has been awarded in the category of “Best product of the year” at the T Magazine Gala Awards 2018. Esther and Elena Castaño-López received this award from Marc O. Eckert, owner of the German firm, Bulthaup.

La Isla and its curves have seduced the design community, achieving its mission: making transit areas friendlier. A place to share with strangers, but respectful of privacy; isolated yet included.

Values such as “out of the box thinking, transgression, originality, talent, trajectory and impact, commitment and creative vision” have been taken into consideration when selecting the winners of #TSpainDesignAwards2018 first edition.

The jury was composed by the National Design Award, Óscar Mariné; the designer Nani Marquina; the curator and cultural researcher specialised in culture, design and innovation, José Luis de Vicente; the general director of Madrid Design Festival, Álvaro Matías; the design director of the American edition of The New York Times Style Magazine, Tom Delavan and the President of Spainmedia, Andrés Rodríguez.
