Short Introduction

The Recycling Design Prize, a biyearly public contest, was awarded for the first time in 2006/2007. It is the only national prize that deals with resource conservation and recycling by way of redesign. Creative thinkers and designers of all ages and professional levels are invited to take part in the contest, which 500 to 600 European designers participate in.

Orientation and Attitude

The rule that applies here is simple: Discover the “hidden meaning of waste”. Left-over and waste material must be used to make new products. The spectrum of popular developments span from decorations and furniture to clothes, textiles and accessories. A top-class jury judges the developments, names the prize winners and other chosen objects. The exhibitions are put up at Marta Herford, an international museum of modern art with a special focus on architecture and design. Other exhibition partners have been stilwerk Designcenter and the Museum of Things (Berlin), among others.
