ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FORUM DESIGN
Hanover's International Forum Design has been conferring prestigious awards since 1954 to firms which distinguish themselves globally in the manufacturing of products with an innovative design and quality. Annually, a jury of famous international designers awards a prize for achievements which stand out for their particular aesthetic/functional characteristics as part of a number of merchandise categories. The main criteria used to evaluate are: the quality and the universality of the design, the degree of innovation, functionality, choice of materials, safety and brand value. These are all aspects that a product needs to be able to satisfy in order to compete in its own category for the IF Design Award.
