COMMENTS OF THE NOMINATORS
This is a consistent system-design approach to a product which generally comes in the form of a closed combination. Aimed at appealing to individual preferences and with built-in future compatibility, the ALPA is a modular model in the best and most literal sense - a trailblazing innovation in the design of consumer goods.
