For its first edition, the ELLE DECO INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS (EDIDA) was held in the Triennale di Milano, a centre for contemporary art, architecture and design and has a reputation for being at the forefront on all of these disciplines. It was the first celebration of global excellence in design and decoration in 11 categories
The Award ceremony traditionally takes place on Thursday during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, the world’s leading furniture fair. Generally the event is held in a different location of the city every year. It gathers the editors-in-chief of ELLE DECORATION editions worldwide who reward the winners of the year in the presence of major actors of the international design community.
