The well-known award, which the Design Center Stuttgart organizes yearly under a different theme, or focus, presents current design trends from different areas. At Focus Know-How, designers and manufacturers show how, on the basis of their research and experience, they have translated their know-how into design, both in the way their products are manufactured and in the way they function.
The catalogue features all the award-winners from the following areas: production, communication, medicine, architecture, interior design, lighting, contract furniture, business environment, living, kitchen, bathroom, sanitary installations, atmosphere, leisure, outdoor, transport and traffic.
