State Prize for Design 2022 awarded | designaustria, 30/05/2022

The Federal Ministry of Digital and Economic Affairs honored Austria’s best design projects.

Vienna (OTS) On the evening of May 25, 2022, the winning projects in the State Design Award 2022 were awarded by the Federal Ministry of Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW) in the Vienna MuseumsQuartier. The coveted prizes, which are awarded every two years by BMDW and performed by designaustria, were awarded in three categories. In addition, the special prize “Spaces & Environment” and the special prize “DesignImpact-Concepts” were awarded by Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH. All award-winning projects can be seen in the exhibition ‘Best of Austrian Design’ at the design forum Vienna until 26 June 2022.

For the 49th time, the Federal Ministry of Digital and Economic Affairs awarded the most creative and innovative design solutions. The purpose of the state award for design is to increase design awareness of the Austrian economy and to strengthen Austria as a business place by recognizing excellent three-dimensional design. The award aims to draw the attention of business and the public to our country’s promising design potential. According to jury member Sylvia Feichtinger, Creative Lead at Peloton (USA), this was achieved in 2022:

“The projects under this year’s Austrian State Prize for Design have once again shown that design awareness is becoming more and more relevant among Austrian companies, but also that the high design quality can easily keep up at international level.”

Out of a total of 205 registrations, the “ROLF bean jars” from ROLF – Roland Wolf GmbH received a prize in the consumer goods category. Studio FA Porsche and Wienerberger Österreich GmbH won the award in the capital goods category for “Tondach V11 – Tondachziegel”. “Fractal Light System” by Thomas Feichtner and Preciosa Lighting convinced the expert jury in the category Interior Product Design. The special award Spaces & Environment went to “Weinmanufaktur Clemens Strobl” from distillate Design Studio GmbH. Three cash prizes of 2,000 euros each in the DesignImpact special category – Concepts from aws – for products and concepts that have not yet been realized – went to Ruben Asuo, Yasmin Hashw and Bettina Löger.
