Design Plus Award

Design Plus was launched by the Design and Life Initiative in 1985. Its sponsors are the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, German Design Council (Rat für Formgebung) and the Association of the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (Industrie- und Handelskammertag - DIHK).

Over the years, the Design Plus label has established itself as a reliable seal of quality for good design. Winners are selected for their ability to combine technical innovation and functionality with aesthetic aspects and meet user requirements.

Design Plus products have to be environmentally responsible and on the market for no longer than two years.

Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt: “With Design Plus, we put the spotlight on products and materials that are future-oriented in terms of their functional, aesthetic and ecological qualities".
