Concept designs push the envelope of the possible, envisioning how technology can be harnessed for new innovations. As such, the iF DESIGN AWARD 2021 Professional Concept discipline is diverse and this year, one trend is towards bringing the gains design has delivered in convenience and energy efficiency (often in combination with IoT technologies but also sustainability and participation) to larger or unaddressed groups in society. One concern was in preventing COVID-19 transmission and managing the disease, and many designs addressed climate change and green awareness. The jurors praised a greater focus on human-centered design than in previous years.
