Design for Asia Award

Recognising good designs that are most influential within Asia

Half of the world's population lives in Asia. The mere fact that Asians in general are becoming more affluent, presents any business with enormous development opportunities. This massive and maturing Asian market has been the driving force behind creations that take care of the various needs of Asian consumers. From apparel and accessories, through communications and interiors to product design, the unique characteristics of Asian consumers are becoming important design considerations. Some outstanding designs have even become trendsetters, influencing the Asian way of living.

Good designs enrich our lives. Their inspirational functionalities make daily living easier, they take into account the impact design can have on our fragile environment and even serve as a public educator, showing us the true value of living a good life. As designers answer the needs of the new and growing Asian market, designs are changing every aspect of lives in the region; working, playing and living have become more enjoyable for the people of Asia.

Design for Asia Award is presented to companies from around the world that have created business successes from good designs that reflect, or have an impact on, the Asian lifestyle. There is also a special merit prize, Distinguished Design from China that is presented to outstanding designs that originate from the Greater China region.

Design for Asia Award is dedicated to promoting design excellence. It also seeks to raise awareness amongst businesses and the public alike, that good design is key to the quality of business success and the enjoyment of life.
