The best among all iF DESIGN AWARD winners

The iF top labels recognise designers, companies and teams who have consistently held leading positions in their field or region. Based on award criteria, the iF top labels are a mark of distinguishment for the best in design in several areas.

Criteria + Definitions


The assessments are made on the basis of a points system, which awards 20 points for every iF award received and 100 points for each iF gold award.

Assigment of points

Points are awarded once per Creative Role (Manufacturer or Client + In-house design team or Design studio). If a prizewinner enters both roles (for example, manufacturer and in-house design team), he also receives the points for both roles.


The iF top labels are updated annually after the iF design awards ceremony. Then the results of the last 5 years of the competition will be used.


The number of iF top labels awarded is based on the number of winners in the group. For reasons of exclusivity, a maximum of 10% of the winners of a group should receive a label.
