Dräger Alcotest to Babynest: 25 years full of iF DESIGFN AWARDS für excellent health and medical design. Happy Design Anniversary!

Design Growth with Dräger - 25 Years of iF Awards

At Dräger, growth and design is paramount - shown by the history of the company and the growing amount of iF DESIGN AWARDS: We are happy to congratulate the German company Dräger on 25 years full of iF awards – 23 since 1994 to be precise.

Dräger is an international leader in the fields of medical, health and safety technology. The family-owned company was founded in Lübeck, Germany, in 1889.

Over the past five generations, Dräger has evolved into a publicly traded, worldwide group. Design has always played a crucial role, as the company says:

“Product design shapes our brand. With a clear design process from the idea to the interaction and usability to the shaping, medical and safety technology products are created that protect, support and save lives.The IF Award is a great appreciation for our product designers and is confirmation of their work. We also like to be part of the creative and innovative design in the future.”
