We at Hettich want to encourage young people. And unleash the fantastic potential of creative students. To do this, we have initiated the International Design Award. Students from all over the world are invited to develop and present innovative solutions for designing furniture: future focused, practical and, what is particularly welcomed, out of the ordinary. The International Design Award is one of the biggest international design contests for students.
International Design Award Ceremony
The awards ceremony of the International Design Award took place on 10 October 2018 in Vienna. The awards were presented to the students after a multi-day "Design Thinking Workshop" in which the winners participated. Congratulations!
