iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. – or iF e.V. for short – is the oldest independent design institution in the world. Its foundation in 1953 was closely linked to Hannover's status as a major trade fair venue: The aim was to create a partner institution for the annual industry exhibition that would look after and support the ‘formal design of industrial products‘ in Germany. Since then, iF e.V. has fulfilled this role in an exemplary manner.
