And the Nominees for the Silmo d’Or are

The International Innovation and Creation Grand Prix, a unique prize recognized throughout the optical and eyewear world, awards the products representing the best innovations in terms of creation, technology and innovation. The designer Emmanuel Gallina will preside the 22nd edition of this quality label. The awards ceremony will be held in a legendary Paris location.

Emmanuel Gallina describes his work as a designer with a quote by Constantin Brancusi: “simplicity is complexity resolved”. Elegance, ease and simplicity are the keys to Gallina’s approach. For each of his projects, his creative ethics reflect both authenticity and coherence. Attention to detail is, to him, a constant reality of shape, form and function.
