The exhibition presents all nominees and winners of the German Federal Ecodesign Award 2018, including products, services and concepts from different sectors like construction, interior, household, mobility, communication and fashion.

About

The impact of products and services on the environment is significantly determined by their design. It is therefore all the more important to consider the ecological consequences of materials and production processes as early as during the conceptualisation process. Moreover, consideration must be given to the consequences of eventual use and the possibilities of repair or reuse. Designers can contribute significantly to ecological change through the creation of sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly solutions.

The exhibition presents all nominees and winners of the German Federal Ecodesign Award 2018, including products, services and concepts from different sectors like construction, interior, household, mobility, communication and fashion. From 350 submissions the interdisciplinary jury nominated 24 projects by companies, nonprofit organisations, start-ups and students.

Since 2012, the German Federal Ecodesign Award has been carried out annually by the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) and the German Environment Agency (UBA) in cooperation with the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ). The award is launched in the competition categories product, service, concept and young-talent.
