  The Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany 2006
March 15 – May 1, 2006

The Prize
The Design Award is the official recognition of excellence in design offered by the Federal Republic of Germany. It is the central thrust in the campaign of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs to promote good design.
From 2006 the award will be given for exceptional creative achievement in the fields of product design and communication design. Organisations cannot apply to be considered for the award, but rather are nominated either at state level by economic ministries and senators with economic responsibilities or by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs. It is a condition of this nomination that the product has already been awarded a national or international prize. No other design prize presents participants with such a severe criterion.
Altogether, a maximum of 25 products can be honoured with the German Design Award in the categories Gold or Silver. "The number of prizes has conciously been kept low and we will continue with this policy in the future", explains Andrej Kupetz, General Manager of the German Design Council. "Only in this way can we guarantee a standard of quality appropriate to the prize in the long term".

Für den Designpreis 2006 waren 865 Erzeugnisse nominiert worden. Die international besetzte Jury wählte 25 Produkte von besonders herausragender Gestaltungsqualität aus, für die 20 Preise in Silber vergeben wurden und 5 Preise in Gold – die "Nobelpreise des Designs".
