The world of materials is developing rapidly and is becoming increasingly complex. In order to be able to develop high class and attractive products in the future, companies have to keep the two main features in their focus today: outstanding design and high technology expertise. By perfectly combining intelligent material selection, expert engineering, a high degree of innovation and impressive design enables companies to gain competitive advantages.

To honor outstanding products and concepts, that meet these demanding criteria, we have launched the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award 13 years ago. By addressing designers and engineers alike, the award has been a trendsetting distinction for innovative products at the interface of material development and application as well as aesthetic and functional design since its premiere in 2003.
