The BraunPrize 2018 challenges creative minds to envision design concepts that matter. Our world is becoming increasingly complex – our focus should be on what is essential, on creating truly better solutions and experiences. By taking on global problems or simply improving the quality of individual lives, we want to encourage innovation that can be virtual or physical, scientific or technical, or that changes our behavior for the better. Awards will go to exceptional ideas and product design concepts – 2 or 3 dimensional, including interactive – that offer progress and improvement, that are significant, substantial, and meaningful: design for what matters.
In 2018 the BraunPrize will celebrate fifty years of commitment to the principles of good design. Established 1968 in Frankfurt, Germany by Erwin Braun, the idea of the BraunPrize is today as relevant as it was then: to nurture and support young, up-and-coming designers and inventors that take on the challenge of making this world a better place with their creativity and craft.
