The DesignEuropa Awards were set up to celebrate and honour designers and businesses that successfully use the EUIPO’s Registered Community Design (RCD) system to bring their great designs to the marketplace. Design is a vital motor of economic growth and job creation. It supports innovation and creativity, and is an important tool in overcoming economic turmoil.
Previous winners of the DesignEuropa Awards include: legendary automobile designer Giorgietto Giugiaro (2016) and the creator of Apple’s first design language, Hartmut Esslinger (2018), both in the Lifetime Achievement Awards categories. The Small and Emerging category has been won by designs owned by Caimi Brevetti (2016) and Marcus Pedersen (2018), while the Industry Award has been won by designs owned by Thule (2016) and Siemens Healthcare GmbH (2018).
