Magic Night at the Ceremony of the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award 2016

Munich, October 2016 – Outstanding design and technology products were awarded on Oct 18 in occasion of the eMove360° Europe 2016 – International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 and Urban & Mobile Design in Munich.

At the festive award ceremony with the exhibitors’ and visitors’ night right after it, 19 companies and organizations had a good reason to be happy as they were awarded with Silver and Gold Awards in the four categories of the competition Material, Surface & Technology, Product and CO2 Efficiency. Four companies even more so, as they received the Best Of Award for the category winners. The Student Award, that was once again endowed with 1,500 Euro, went to Mark Tholen of the OCAD University in Toronto, Canada.

„The general level of quality was once again a bit more elevated compared to recent years. We really had a hard time this year to reject some of the products and projects handed in. I cordially congratulate all winners“, said Robert Metzger, Managing Director of MunichExpo and organizer of the award.
