Category: Excellent Architecture – Special Mention – German Design Award 2021
Felix Schwake has won the Paris Design Award 2020. In addition, the "FELIX SCHWAKE DESK MMXX II" was awarded the "Grand Prix Winner - Product of the Year" for the best product design of 2020.
The »Special Mention« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to consistent
design conception and implementation. In each category, the jury awards an appropriate
number of entries with this mark of excellence for innovative design based on their quality.
They are selected by a separate expert jury for each category of the German Design Awards.
The German Design Awards set the highest standards in terms of selecting their winners: in the
nomination process, expert committees of the German Design Council only invite those
products and communication design services for participation in the awards who
demonstrably stand out from the competition on account of their design excellence.
All distinctions are awarded during a two-day jury meeting.
Since their debut in 2012, the German Design Awards have grown considerably – from approx.
1,500 submissions in their first year to some 5,000 submissions in each of the past few years.
As such, the huge international impact of the German Design Awards is underscored by the
number of participants. Most recently, the share of international submissions stood at 50%. In
total, participants from 60 countries have taken part in the awards.
In the three award disciplines, »Excellent Product Design«, »Excellent Communications
Design« and »Excellent Architecture«, a total of 76 products/projects have been awarded
