About us

Since 1953 iF has been a capable and reputable provider of design services at the interface of design and economy. It is our aim to strengthen public awareness of design. To achieve this, we take great care in extending the communication network that we have built through our design-oriented activities over the years.


With our iF competition - the iF DESIGN AWARD - we have become one of the largest and most respected design centers in the world.

The iF logo, which is given to the winners of our competitions, has become an internationally acknowledged symbol of outstanding design. It serves as a beacon for design-interested audiences in the global economies.
However, our team not only organizes the iF competitions: under the label "organized by iF" we also manage third party projects and offer our multi-faceted know-how in the areas of competition design and management and in all questions related to design and economic issues.


The iF profile

For more than fifty years, iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. has been located in the grounds of the Messe Hannover in Germany. A result of the 1953 "Sonderschau formgerechter Industrieerzeugnisse", the iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. was complemented in 2001 by the iF International Forum Design GmbH, which is responsible for all areas of business, and particularly for the renowned iF competitions


As an independent organization, iF has an important role as mediator between design and economy - a role that iF has fulfilled reliably and with the highest degree of integrity for many years. iF provides a fundamental contribution to the success of design services in an economic context and to the creation of public awareness of design.

The iF design awards are among the most important design awards in the world. This is confirmed by an annual number of more than 20,000 competition entries from more than 50 countries.
