Design Prize Switzerland


The nominations for Design Prize Switzerland 2013/14 have been decided: out of some 300 projects submitted, U-TURN had been nominated by the jury as a candidate for this year's prize awards.
Design Prize Switzerland is being held in 2013 for the twelfth time. The competition is designed to boost the importance of Swiss design, so prizes are awarded for outstanding performance in seven professional fields. The competition does not see itself as being just a prize contest - at the same time it is an institution which aims, through the award of prizes, to establish Swiss design more firmly in the economy. In a two-phase procedure, the projects submitted are nominated by acknowledged specialists for consideration by the jury. The jury, composed of international experts, then awards prizes to the best of the nominated works. The 12th award ceremony of the competition, which is held every two years, will take place in Langenthal on Friday, 1 November 2013.
