Dieter Rams receives Lifetime Achievement Award

A special highlight this year: design icon Dieter Rams received the first iF Design Lifetime Achievement Award! His work has inspired countless industrial designers, including Apple's former design guru, pioneer and influencer of today's smartphone design - British designer Jonathan Ive. In addition, Rams' ten principles of good design continue to guide the work of many people today. Many of his legendary Braun products have won the iF DESIGN AWARD over the years.
The award was presented by iF Design CEO Uwe Cremering; the laudatory speech was given by Prof. Fritz Frenkler, Vice Chairman of the iF Design Foundation.

Meet the People – meet the World of Design

At the iF DESIGN AWARD NIGHT some of the winners come from far away, for example from Australia, Brasil or the USA. Others have a shorter way - they can probably even walk from their Berlin office to the Friedrichstadt-Palast or just take a train ride. No matter how: In this one night, the best people of design meet up!

For you, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to connect with other creative people from all over the world. Talk about new projects, see how other people work in different countries and get to know the people from your field. In short: Get inspired and inspire others!

"I feel part of a worldwide community of design - incredible design! So we recommend everyone to participate and be part of this!"
