The ‘ein&zwanzig’ (“twenty-one”) awards were presented on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2018 in Zona Tortona. The 21 most innovative product and project ideas of talented international up-and-coming designers received this prestigious accolade. The climax of the event was the awarding of the Best of Best prize, which went to Berlin-based Sofia Souidi. All of the winning projects were on view at the ‘ein&zwanzig’ exhibition in Milan, from 17 until 22 April.
The international attention and prestige attached to the ‘ein&zwanzig’ awards is demonstrated by the response it attracted: 736 works from 60 countries covering the fields of design and lifestyle were submitted – 30 percent more than in the previous year. The 21 prize winners were selected by a high-calibre international jury from the worlds of design and industry including top-class designers.
The German Design Council’s ‘ein&zwanzig’ competition promotes and supports talented young designers: Design students and graduates who are producing pioneering work in the fields of furniture, home accessories, lighting, floor coverings, wall coverings, textiles and lifestyle are eligible to enter. From among the submissions an international jury selected 21 outstanding works, one of which received the Best of Best award.
