The German Design Award was established in 2012 as an international design competition organised by the German Design Council founded by the German Federal Parliament in 1953. Only those products that have been awarded design prizes in countries other than Germany and thus have already been recognised publicly for outstanding design quality are eligible for the competition, subject to nomination by the German Design Council. Therefore, being nominated as a candidate for the award itself is an honour. Due to the rigorous screening process, the German Design Award is known as the “Award of Awards.”
