Glamorous awards ceremony of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022

The international design scene celebrated the best iF designs of the year in Berlin: on 16 May 2022, the winners of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022 were honored at a glittering awards ceremony.

The iF DESIGN AWARD NIGHT 2022 attracted almost 1,500 guests from 36 countries to the legendary Friedrichstadt-Palast.

At one of the most important international design events of the year, the "Who is Who of Design" met: almost 1,500 guests from 36 countries were drawn to the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin on 16 May 2022 to celebrate the winners of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022. The 73 most outstanding products and projects received special recognition with the highest iF award, the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022 Gold. On the world's largest theater stage, the international award winners received the coveted iF Gold sculpture from iF CEO Uwe Cremering and TV presenter Katrin Müller-Hohenstein.

An international 132-member independent jury of experts had a lot to do this year. It was the biggest iF DESIGN AWARD ever: Nearly 11,000 submissions from 57 nations were evaluated in a two-stage jury process. For the iF Final Jury from 29 to 31 March 2022, the experts met in the Wilhelm Hallen to award the iF DESIGN AWARDS 2022. After intensive discussions, a total of 1,973 participants were honored. 73 entries received the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022 Gold.

The iF DESIGN AWARD was decided in the following disciplines:

  • Product design

  • Communication design

  • Packaging design

  • Service design

  • Architecture

  • Interior Architecture

  • User Experience (UX)

  • User Interface (UI)

  • Professional concept

iF CEO Uwe Cremering: ‘We are extremely happy that we could welcome so many guests to our awards ceremony in these extraordinary times. Especially that our international award winners did not shy away from the long and sometimes difficult journey to pick up their iF DESIGN AWARD in person and celebrate with us! Already the iF Final Jury round at the end of March in Berlin's Wilhelm Hallen, which was attended by our jurors, encouraged us to bring the global design community together again. The gala was a crowning conclusion to the biggest iF DESIGN AWARD ever. We would like to thank our participants once again for the many exciting submissions – and are already looking forward to the new round, the iF DESIGN AWARD 2023, which has already started online!’
