Danish Design Award:
We Celebrate the Difference Design Can Make

What is good design? And how can it change our lives for the better?

We showcase and celebrate the best Danish design solutions with the Danish Design Award every year. From healthcare, education, and work to 13 more categories, the award demonstrates the impact of good design in all aspects of our everyday lives.

Design alone won’t save the world, but how can we acknowledge and promote the solutions that help solve some of the significant challenges of our time and ultimately improve lives?

A national celebration

Danish Design Award is Denmark’s national award for outstanding design. The annual event brings together the design industry, businesses, and the general public to celebrate the difference design can make.

The award categories range from job-creating and cost-cutting design over health solutions and resource sharing to visionary concepts that demonstrate the diversity of design and its value to both companies and society.

“Profound change happens when we solve everyday challenges. Danish designers continue to demonstrate that their ability to solve these challenges is limitless – be it a chair designed from sustainable materials or an app to assist healthcare workers”

Christian Bason

CEO, DDC – Danish Design Center

Danish Design Award:
