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.
