LEHRTE, GERMANY, 15. November 2021

Lehrte, November 15, 2021 – ECOLEAF has been awarded as winner of the German Design Awards 2022 for outstanding design quality in the category Excellent Product Design in the industrial segment.

The German Design Awards have been presented by the German Design Council for the tenth time. The internationally renowned prizes are awarded to companies whose pioneering products and projects stand out in the categories of “Excellent Product Design”, “Excellent Communications Design” and “Excellent Architecture”.

Since their debut in 2012, the German Design Awards have grown considerably – from approx. 1,500 submissions in their first year to some 4,500 submissions in each of the past few years. As such, the huge international impact of the German Design Awards is underscored by the number of participants from other countries. Most recently, the share of international submissions stood at 50%. In total, participants from 60 countries have taken part in the awards.

With its worldwide spectrum and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design landscape across all industries. Since 2012, the German Design Awards have been identifying significant design trends, presenting them to a broad public and honouring them. Every year, extraordinary submissions in product design, communication design and architecture are honoured.


The German Design Awards set the highest standards in terms of selecting their winners: in the nomination process, expert committees of the German Design Council only invite those products and communication design services for participation in the awards who demonstrably stand out from the competition on account of their design excellence.

In the three award disciplines, »Excellent Product Design«, »Excellent Communications Design« and »Excellent Architecture«, a total of 76 products/projects have been awarded »Gold« in 2021.
