Kaj Franck Award

Established in 1992, the Kaj Franck Design Prize is awarded to designers working in the spirit of the late Kaj Franck. The purpose of the prize is to celebrate a designer’s innovative work in the field of industrial design. The prize can be awarded to a Finnish designer, team or one that resides or works in Finland. The prize is awarded on the merit of the designer’s entire body of work.

In addition to a prize of 10,000 euros, the Kaj Franck Design Prize includes the Kaj Franck Medal, designed by Tapio Junno, and a prize exhibition at Design Forum Finland. This prize was established by Design Forum Finland and is funded by the Finnish Fair Foundation. The recipient is chosen by a prize jury and is awarded annually without prior application.
