The German Design Award is Germany's premier design award. Prizes are awarded to projects that truly represent pioneering contributions to the German and international design landscape. The event is commissioned by the highly respected German Design Council which was established on the initiative of the German Bundestag (the lower house of German parliament) as a foundation in 1953.
