A competition initiated by the architectural journals AIT and xia Intelligente Architektur in cooperation with the ORGATEC fair, Koelnmesse (October 23rd to 27th, 2018)

For the 10th time the architectural journals AIT and xia Intelligente Architektur in cooperation with Koelnmesse GmbH, initiated the Innovation Award Architecture+ Office during the ORGATEC fair in Cologne. The Innovation Award is intended for manufacturers of innovative products to be applied in office buildings – such as office furniture, accessories, lighting, flooring and acoustics, as well as architects, interior designers and designers who work in these areas and have developed associated products.

The design and architecture award honors products that correspond to the requirements of architects to a special degree. It recognizes conceptual project-specific solutions and selected products, which satisfy in design and functionality. Important assessment criteria are the authenticity of materials and the variety of application.

47 exhibiting companies registered 76 products to compete for the Innovation Award Architecture+ Office 2018. A jury of five renowned architects and interior designers decided upon the winners and special mentions on October 23rd, 2018, the opening day of the ORGATEC.
