The Design Plus Award honours innovative design solutions for every day and it belongs to the most important design competitions in Germany. The supporters are the Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, the Design Council and the German Industrial and the Commercial Chamber.
Form and Function convince
Innovative product novelties were honoured with the Design Plus seal again this year in the event of the Ambiente, the international fair for consumer goods. The award animates famous manufacturers and newcomers to find intelligent design solutions and to rethink everyday objects in their form and function. The condition to present a product is that it shouldn’t be on the market since more than two years. The Design Plus Award offers a current overview of innovative product novelties to traders and consumers.
The eight-members of the professional jury includes manufacturers, designers, traders and reporters who chose a total of 22 products and collections of 14 international companies that convinced by innovative design, function and aestheticism. The awarded everyday-objects convince by innovative functions and also by their appearance.
The companies Alessi, Amefa Stahlwaren GmbH, Berndes Küche GmbH, Deejo, Emform, Joseph Joseph Ltd, Kahla/Thüringer Porzellan GmbH, LinenMe, Otter Messer GmbH/Moritz Wenz Studio, OXO International, Philippi GmbH, Roji Associates Co., Ltd., side by side Caritas Wendelstein Werkst#tten and Stelton were the awarded manufacturers.
