iF AWARD 2022
The iF Award ceremony was a great success this year, having returned after two years on May 16th at the legendary theater Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin.
Started in Germany in 1953 to enhance and disseminate national design, the iF Award soon took on an international dimension, becoming one of the most prestigious design awards and becoming an undisputed indicator of excellence all over the world.
The 2022 edition had 11,000 applications divided into different categories, among which the following stood out: Product Design, Communication and Services, User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI).
An international jury of 132 members evaluated projects from companies from 57 countries. Only 73 products among all the candidates were awarded the highest honor, the iF Gold. Within these, there were two Italian companies, Luxottica and TechnoAlpin, and only one design studio: MM Design.
The event involves designers and companies and has once again been established as a reference point from which to observe a considerable heterogeneity of projects, selected on the basis of the quality, research and innovation of the proposals.
The presence of nearly 2,000 guests from 36 countries made the iF Award ceremony evening an important opportunity for dialogue and discussion. There was a shared desire to bring out different planning perspectives aimed at new, peaceful and constructive solutions with an emphasis on mankind and the environment.
