In 2019, the Cologne Design Prize will be awarded for the 12th time and will be offered by the Toby E. Rodes Foundation, Berlin. As one of the most coveted awards for young design graduates, the prize honours the life and work of German-American designer Toby E. Rodes. The prize recognises outstanding graduation projects from students enrolled in design courses at Cologne-based universities. Hence, this prize is a significant contribution both to supporting young design talent and to promoting Cologne’s profile as a design centre of international importance. The exhibition at the MAKK will feature all shortlisted projects and the winning projects until 17 November 2019. Admission is free.
