Insights into the green future
What does a green future look like and what fits to the “Future Village” award theme?
The yearbook answers this question as an innovation reading with all winners and nominees, which also sees the light of day on this day and will be presented to the public for the first time. Sustainable examples from the categories architecture, bathroom, electronics, fashion, children, consumer goods, mobility, outdoor, office and interior are included.
Awards for a network full of good ideas
The awards not only stand for exceptional achievements, but are intended to achieve much more. Nils Bader, initiator of the award: “With the awards we present existing, future and of course sustainable alternatives and network the players. With the exhibition and the talks we want to surprise and show what is already possible. Nobody should go as he or she came - in the future, plan, design and ultimately consume with a different perspective.
The format of the Green Product Award provides enough examples of what is already possible today and will continue to move the green scene in the future:
"The Golden Phoenix" - a golden dress with sequins made of algae and fabric made of peace silk, which was dyed naturally with Curcuma. The source of the prototype are organic residues, in the form of a dress the phoenix rises from it to connect to the earth again after the excursion.
|„Desserto“ - the vegan cactus leather alternative is ripe for use in interior covers, clothing and accessories. The material celebrates its European premiere here.
