Evaluation of previous winners:




The CMF Design Award was introduced and launched for the first time to the audience and gives a special honour to the sensorial and aesthetic design of products.


CMF is until now an underrated and sometimes marginally treated component of good design. But facing the overcrowded and fast changing market full of hundreds of brands and products, the visual and haptic design is more important than before.
