On 5 September, design took centre stage at AXICA when the prizes of the DesignEuropa Awards, organised by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), were awarded. After Italy, Poland and the Netherlands, the fourth edition took place in Berlin to celebrate European design talent.
In the Forum, 200 guests gathered to witness the awarding of three prizes: Small and Medium Enterprises Prize, Industry Prize for Large Enterprises and Lifetime Achievement Award.
In addition to the large Forum, our Plenum, Gehry Lounge and Sky Lobby provided space for parallel sessions and side events.
Congratulations to the winners Remigo (designer Adja Bertok), Smeg Italia (designers Raffaella Mangiarotti and Matteo Bazzicalupo) and María Benktzon.
What better way to honour European design than in our jewel of design and architecture?
