The Award that visualizes success

How can the sustainable transformation of our industry and society succeed? What new ways of thinking, materials and economic models are needed to achieve this goal?


Today more than ever, outstanding design means providing answers to the challenges of our time, promoting thinking in circular models and realising visions of a better world based on the design of actions. Sometimes it is only small changes or ideas that have a big impact, sometimes it is entire business models. The top-class international jury of the German Design Award honours these groundbreaking design achievements - and the German Design Award makes the design trends visible across all sectors in a glittering setting.
