8th RecyclingDesignAward
Outstanding ideas

28.01.2018 –

For the eighth time now, the Recycling​DesignAward is dedicated to the latest developments in the field of sustainable design. Original new uses for long-spent objects or the narrative charm of used surfaces – in the search for the “hidden meaning of discarded things” there are no limits to the ideas.


Until November 2017, designers from all over the world could submit their designs, which then were selected by an international jury for the exhibition. The prizes will be awarded to the winners within the framework of the opening. For the first time the amount of € 4,000 will be awarded: 2,500 euros for the best design, € 1,000 for the second and € 500 for the third prize.

After its premiere in Herford, the exhibition will be going on a world tour.
The association Arbeitskreis Recycling e.V. Herford is responsible for the project.
