About form design magazine

form is an independent design magazine founded in 1957. It is dedicated to the design of the visible and invisible, classifying design socially and taking a critical – sometimes uncomfortable – standpoint. form attaches particular importance to promoting young people and their (design) perspectives. Thus, form 2020 presents the first form Progress Award also in the conviction that a promising opportunity is to listen to young people.


Together with Tulga Beyerle, Barbara Lersch, Dick Spierenburg, Nina Sieverding is part of the jury in 2020 that selects the exhibitor projects.

form Progress Award

The form Progress Award is presented by the design magazine form and honours a project that is not only innovative but also progressive. If designers are critically involved in the development process of projects at an early stage, they can play a significant and responsible role in creating a better future. Design is always an opportunity for change, so the project should convey an independent design attitude that is closely aligned with current technological, ethical, social and political discourse.

The Form Progress Award is endowed with 1000 Euro and includes an additional feature in the form Designmagazin as well as an annual subscription to the form Designmagazin.
