In 2018 Tubes was awarded the XXV Compasso d’Oro with Origami, a heating element with a dual function, designed by Alberto Meda, officially making design history.

In 2021, the ADI Design Museum was inaugurated in Milan to host the Compasso d'Oro Collection. Since 1954, the Compasso d’Ora has been the biggest accolade in the world of design at international level.

The idea came to Gio Ponti, who wanted to emphasise the quality of products made in Italy, but above all to acknowledge the value process that design passes onto the world of production and to society at all levels. Within the ADI Design Museum, a special focus has been given to Origami by Tubes within the permanent exhibition dedicated to the Historic Compasso Collection curated by Beppe Finessi.

An Origami free-standing H.83.4 in pearlescent black, an Origami wall version - double module in satin finish light grey and an Origami free-standing H.163.5 cm in pearl mouse grey take to the stage alongside technical diagrams, sketches, prototype elements and illustrative material showing not only the finished product but also the design and manufacturing process.
