international connecting, networking and reach

It is part of the worldwide design community and has always contributed to the establishment of global exchange and networking thanks to its international offering, promotion of new talent and memberships.

environmentally friendly & sustainable designs


In 2023, meeting current demands means focusing on society and the impact that products and services have on it: through multi-perspective approaches, sustainable design processes and production that is both resource and environmentally friendly. The international jury of experts for the German Design Awards distinguishes ground-breaking design achievements as the Awards provide trends with visibility across all sectors.
