Progress never sleeps. That's why the German Design Council - shortly after the this year's award ceremony, which made a forward-looking statement for newcomers and eco design - encouraging companies, designers, architects and agencies worldwide to submit their products and projects for the German Design Award 2024. The registration deadline is September 1, 2023.
Design: Predicting and driving green & social trends
Since the German Design Award was first announced in 2012, it has advanced to become the international benchmark for innovative design development and competitiveness. In other words: The price defines the rules of tomorrow's game for the global market.
Award-winning concepts are therefore considered indicators of how the industry will develop. For example, the award has been recognizing sustainable projects that see innovation and design as the driving force behind sustainability for a number of years now. A trend that is slowly but surely being picked up by the mainstream, as well as being demanded by stakeholders and regulators.
The German Design Council thus emphasizes that groundbreaking projects in the design landscape offer orientation for the diverse transformation tasks of our time. Excellent design is no longer enough. Products and services must be multi-perspective, human-oriented and resource- and environmentally friendly.
