blickfang's Future Forward promotional competition supports product and furniture designers

Our motivation is good, manufactured & sustainably designed products. The Future Forward Award is intended to guarantee long-term production and make the products accessible to the general public.

This is why we have launched the Future Forward competition. You can win a free trade fair participation and personal intensive coaching with a well-known industry expert such as Nils Holger Moormann, Alfredo Häberli or Studio Besau-Marguerre.

All product designers who have already designed a piece of furniture such as a table, chair, light, shelf or cupboard and perhaps even produced a small series can take part. Designers who have already exhibited at blickfang fair in the past three years are excluded.

To apply for funding, please submit the registration form together with at least 3 photos of your product and a short product description and send them to futureforward(@) The next application deadlines are 15.8.2019 (for a presentation of the winners at blickfang Vienna, Stuttgart, Zurich) and 15.11.2019 (for a presentation of the winners at blickfang Hamburg, Basel).

A jury consisting of blickfang mentors, curators and jury members of the blickfang design award selects the winners from all entries.

Jennifer Reaves, managing director of blickfang, is pleased: "The demand proves us right. Designers from all over Europe applied for the first round of tenders in August. We hope that this will enable us to make a contribution to the production and distribution of good products in the long term".
