interzum award 2023

interzum award 2023

In the interzum award, the best products of the international supplier industry for furniture and interior design are selected by an international jury of experts. Participation in the design competition, which Koelnmesse is organising for the twelfth time in cooperation with Red Dot, is reserved exclusively for exhibitors at interzum.

The award underlines the importance of the value-added factors of design, sustainability and innovation and is used by the prize-winners as a meaningful label with which they can positively distinguish themselves from the competition in a large market.

Environmental protection, sustainability, circular economy - a few years ago these were topics that hardly played a role in the business world. This has now, of necessity, changed fundamentally. Innovations in products and production processes as well as new materials are the kind of impulses for a sustainable economy that are driven from within the companies themselves and bring this year's interzum guiding principle "Shaping the Change" to life. It is precisely such innovations that deserve our special attention - also and especially in the context of a leading international trade fair like interzum 2023.

For us, one way of helping our exhibitors' achievements in this area to gain more visibility is to award pioneering products, processes and concepts in ecological terms in the interzum award 2023. For this purpose, we have created the new competition category "Neo Ecology". You can read more about this category and the evaluation criteria on page 4 of the competition brochure.

The closing date for applications was 24 February 2023.
