Exhibitions Title



The iF design exhibition Hamburg features excellent design from all over the world. On two floors and a total of 1,500 m² (16,146 square feet) of floor space, we present outstanding innovations which have been recognized with an iF DESIGN AWARD. Additionally, we display all entries and award winners from the iF awards for young designers. A must-see for all design lovers.

Each year, three different exhibition segments are presented in a row, with each segment featuring award-winning products from all categories of the latest iF DESIGN AWARD. Thus, there is always something new to discover.

Interactive modules such as our ‘surf tables’ and our comprehensive iF online exhibition provide the option to explore all 33,000 iF DESIGN AWARD winners from 1953 onwards, as well as about 1,300 winning entries from the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD.
