ALEENA 4.0 selected for the ADI Design Index 2018


The Permanent Observatory of Design ADI, the Italian Industrial Design Association, has selected ALEENA 4.0 by Repente, with its exclusive RLS System, for the publication in the ADI Design Index 2018.

The ADI Design Index 2018 collects all preselected products for the 2018 ADI Compasso d’Oro Award, the most prestigious recognition of the project quality and the excellence of Italian design. 172 products were selected among 746, to represent the best examples of Italian design.

ALEENA 4.0 is one of the covers that make up a modular system consisting of several pads and a single “RC base”. Ultralight and comfortable (the pressure map measurements show up to 38% more comfort than the average high-end seats). The saddle features the patented RLS system which makes it possible to replace this saddle cover/pad with other Repente models currently available or that will be developed in the future. The lower portion of the saddle thus becomes a direct extension of the support, ensuring maintenance of position in case of replacement. Thanks to this system it is possible to keep your saddle efficient by reducing the expense and waste at the end of life-cycle of up to 60%.

The ADI exhibition, which opens in October in Milan and in November in Rome, is a summary of the surprises that the creativity of designers and producers brings to our everyday life. It gives the business world, professionals and the general public a complete overview of what design means today for the Made in Italy.
