The international Green Product and Concept Award is calling for submissions for 2021.
The award is on the lookout for sustainable products, services and concepts from established companies, start-ups and students in 11 categories.
Why doesn’t my house grow with me? Can I turn my bed into a desk? What do I actually wear in home office? Which new material really makes my product sustainable? For this purpose, the organizers are looking for concepts as well as existing solutions that make a sustainable lifestyle a reality.
The Green Product Award and the Green Concept Award are accompanied by an international jury, partners such as the IKEA Stiftung and country scouts who are looking for green innovators around the world.
The Green Product Award recognizes products and services that are already on the market. It is aimed at start-ups and companies. The Green Concept Award, which is awarded in cooperation with the IKEA Stiftung, is dedicated to the concepts of students, graduates, start-ups and companies.
Both awards are presented in the categories:
- Architecture & Tiny Houses
- Building Components
- Interior & Lifestyle
- Consumer Goods
- Circular Materials
The entries and outcomes are shown at trade fairs such as Neonyt, Heimtextil, Ambiente and on 330sqm at the International Craft & Trade Fair, Munich. On a design trip with Deutschen Designtag under the motto “Designers unpack”, selected materials, prototypes and products provide the impetus in 12 German cities for workshops, talks and other projects. The trip starts at Munich Creative Business Week in March. A showroom in Berlin and the construction of the future village settlement are in preparation.
