On 13 June 2024, the Triennale in Milan, the heart of Italian design, will host this year’s Awards Ceremony. The award-winning concepts will be shown in Valencia/Spain in September 2024 during the HABITAT furniture fair in the special exhibition NUDE, from 30 September to 3 October 2024.

The jury process takes place in two stages: In March 2024, all concepts will be evaluated by an international jury of experts in an Online Jury. The 300 best works will then qualify for the Final Jury, which will select the winners on 26 April 2024 in Berlin and award the prize money to the most outstanding concepts.
