E-LOUNGE was born from Antonio Lanzillo & partners creativity as a bench where you can relax, meet friends or work on the outside, promoting at the same time a new idea of sustainable mobility that goes at the same speed with the new habits of citizens.
“The achievement of this international recognition, the most important in the world of design, is a goal we have been chasing for a long time“ declares Antonio Lanzillo „Designing E-LOUNGE was a challenge that we got with passion and in which we have invested commitment and creativity. The result is an urban object with a high aesthetic and functional value, which interacts with the current needs of the new generations, supports the habits of a society on the move, and promotes green mobility. E-LOUNGE best represents our style and our potential in the design field, but above all clearly shows our sustainable philosophy.“

After seeing E-LOUNGE participating at the Shanghai International Expo in 2019, today we are happy to receive such an award, crowning the wonderful work done in recent years.“
