COORDINATION ASIA receives German Design Award 2017
As spring is fast approaching, we are excited to announce our latest award news: COORDINATION ASIA has won a German Design Award! The Rainbow Chapel, our circular kaleidoscopic addition to the Shanghai Museum of Glass Park, won this year’s German Design Award for Architecture. The award was presented to COORDINATION ASIA on February 10 at the German Design Award ceremony in Frankfurt. All winning projects are selected in a two-day jury session, made up of design experts from various disciplines. They come from the world of business, education, and science as well as the design industry and are recognized leading authorities in their respective fields.
Divided in Excellent Product Design and Excellent Communication Design, all aspects of day-to-day life are awarded in this competition. Despite its name, the German Design Award is a truly global competition, with 758 entries coming from abroad.
The German Design Award sets the highest standards when it comes to selecting the prize-winners: in the nomination process, panels of experts from the German Design Council invite only those products and communication design services to participate in the competition that demonstrably set themselves apart from their competitors thanks to their design quality.
The German Design Award is conferred by the German Design Council, Germany’s leading brand and design authority. Its mission is to present the latest developments on the German design scene. Established in 1953 as a foundation on the initiative of the German Bundestag, it supports the economy in consistently achieving brand value through design. This makes the German Design Council one of the world’s leading centers for communication and brand management in the field of design.
The winners in the category of communications design will be exhibited from February 11th –26th, 2017 at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt. Thank you to everyone who made this award possible – it is a huge honor to be distinguished by the German Design Council once again.
