“And the winner is…” – Can a trade fair get off to a better start than with the conferring of honours for innovative products and creative design concepts? This is part of the good tradition of Kind + Jugend. With the now 13th ceremonious conferring of the Innovation Awards and the KIDS DESIGN AWARD, the first day of the trade fair this year once again brought a real highlight. And the alleged “unlucky number” didn’t please only the happy winners. The many visitors were also enthusiastic.

 The winners of the Innovation Awards

With the Kind + Jugend Innovation Awards, new products for babies and toddlers that stand out due to an especially innovative idea, outstanding technology, a high degree of functionality and/or extraordinary design have been honoured for the last 13 years.

The following products were able to assert themselves in the eight prize categories.

Winner of the Kids Design Award: Yijung Du

THE KIDS DESIGN AWARD 2017 goes to: Yijung Du

 Swivel chair and play device in one: Yijung Du’s “Behind The Mountains” inspired the jury with multi-functionality and an imaginative design designed from a child’s perspective in the form of an idyllic lake in a mountain landscape. In this way the student of the Münster School of Design asserted herself against 112 applications from a total of 18 countries.

 The KIDS DESIGN AWARD promotes product concepts and studies of young designers that are not yet commercially available. Exceptional ideas, concepts and prototypes are distinguished. In addition to this, Kind + Jugend presents the designs of all nominated young designers in a special event, and thus provides a chance to find a sponsor from the industry to bring their product to a state of market readiness.
