Design Preis 2008

After Bagno Sasso received the red dot design award best of the best in 2007, it was also proudly presented with the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2008.

The Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany is the highest possible distinction, which one can receive in the field of design in Germany. Every year, this award of awards, which enjoys an incredible reputation in the field of design, is presented to select companies.

How does the awarding of the Design Award work in detail?
The Design Award enjoys a high reputation among experts because it encompasses extremely fastidious requirements, which need to be met before one can even be nominated. For example, a company must already have achieved national or international distinction, in order to even participate in the awarding process. Moreover, the nomination must be approved by the Ministries of Economic Affairs and/or the Federal Ministry for Economy and Technology, before one is allowed to enter the competition.

Once the lucky company has been selected, the prestigious award is presented by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Board of Design, whereby this takes place at a festive, stylish event that is also open to the general public. The awarded pieces of work are exhibited at the most diverse exhibitions during the following months, where the fantastic quality can be openly admired by all. A catalogue is also distributed, which depicts images of the awarded works, so that everyone is able to make their own impression of these perfectly designed works.

What does the history of the Design Award look like?
This extremely prestigious award encompasses a considerable history, spanning all the way back to the late Sixties. The award was first presented in 1969, and was called the Federal Award of Good Form. At the time, it was an award that was handed out every two years. The organisers also made sure that different core topics were represented for every award.

The first important change occurred in 1992, when the Federal Award for Product Design and the Federal Award for the Supporters of Design were awarded annually. The latter was presented to exceptional personalities, whose supports of design were simply outstanding. In 2006, the award was renamed again, and became the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany. Outstanding achievements, especially in the sectors of product design and communication design, as well as brilliant personalities in design, received this special award.

The significance of the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany became clear very quickly, which is why all companies that have the pleasure of receiving this award, can be regarded as true experts in the field of design.
