In April 2018, the non-profit iF Design Foundation was established. Its aim is to promote design and its social significance, free from commercial pressures and restrictions. This new foundation replaces iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. (iF e.V.), which operated from 1953 until 2018. The iF Design Foundation is based in the German city of Hannover.
