Hangar Design Group was established in 1980 by the architects Alberto Bovo and Sandro Manente as a a multidisciplinary design and communication studio. Right from the start, it was the vocation for design that inspired choices and guided development. The interpretation of design as an omnipresent, pervasive dimension of each and every item, be it architectonic, material or digital, has led them to experiment, crossing-over into the territory of graphics, industrial design, interior and web architecture and multimedia design, in a constant evolution of experiences. And yet within this path, a single thought and form has gradually taken shape, becoming the studio's true stylistic signature. Languages and supports may change, but the coherence of a rigorous, indeed necessary, consistent, lasting sign remains.
Hangar Design Group is today an international network with a staff of more than forty among brand strategists, graphic and industrial designers, architects, web and multimedia developers, operating in Treviso, Milan, New York, Barcelona, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Hangar Design Group has been awarded with several prizes, including: Eulda Award (2006), Neocon Innovation Award (2007), Red Hot Design Award (2009), Italy of Innovation Expo Shanghai (2010). In 2011 it received the prestigious Compasso d'Oro Award for the Sunset mobile home project.
