Since 1953, the German iF Design Award has been awarded to acknowledge outstanding design achievements. Every year, a jury consisting of international experts selects products that particularly stand out in terms of product, communication and packaging design as well as interior decoration. The iF Design Award is considered to be an indicator for future trends and developments in the area of industrial and product design. The iF Product Design Award is a prize awarded in Germany. Originally, this award was presented by the association “Die gute Industrieform e.V.”(“The Good Industrial Form”). In 2001, this association was transformed to become the iF International Design Forum GmbH which since then has been responsible for the organisation of this competition. Furthermore, the iF Concept Design Award is one of the largest and most renowned youth competition awards which is presented within the framework of the iF Design Award.
