252 up-and-coming young designers from 40 countries responded to the call of the Kind + Jugend and applied for the advancement award with their prototypes. Now a jury of experts nominated ten up-and-coming young designers: Annika Marie Buchberger (Cuxhaven), Jana Cerna (Karlstejn, Tschechien), Xinyang Du (Peking, China), Daniela Gardeweg (Düsseldorf), Constanze Hosp (Halle/Saale), Claus Kørup Jensen (Kolding, Dänemark), Sabine Lachnit (Fulda), Antonia Renate Lorz (Erlangen), Andreas Mikutta (Schongau), Maren Zielke (Berlin). The award ceremony opening the trade fair takes place on Thursday September 10th in hall 10.1, booth A070.

However, there’s more to it than that: an exclusive cooperation with a partner from industry is awaiting every design-talent. In this cooperation the handed in draft shall be extended and brought onto the market. Already ten representatives from industry and trading – including the daughter company baby & family GmbH of the EK/servicegroup, one of the biggest German trade associations – have reported as possible partners before the trade fair has even started. In addition to the listing of the product the EK/servicegroup holds out the prospect of an enormous marketing concept which includes the projection of every important platform of the association.

The results of Jannis Ellenberger’s, the winner of the Kids Design Award 2014, and Jörg de Breuyn’s collaboration can be seen on this year’s trade fair. The finalized modular system for kids and grown-ups celebrates its premiere in the Design Parc. The products under the flag of de Breuyn – children’s furniture with system can be soon purchased.

Subsequent to the trade fair an opportunity to make new contacts is provided: After the Kind + Jugend all trade visitors and exhibitors get the opportunity to look at all the handed in drafts and possibly start a cooperation through the online-tool “Matchmaking365-Community”.
