The new IF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE makes the entire archive of all design objects that ever received the iF award accessible online for the first time, from timeless furniture design classics to kitchen equipment from the 1970s, right up to digital communication from the more recent past. Included in the guide, along with 37,000 award-winning entries, are also 14,000 award-winning companies and 50,000 ideas from up-and-coming young talent.
The objective was to conquer this mountain of material and to transform the gigantic data base into a unique source of inspiration for the design world. The solution is something that is mostly unseen: An intelligent back-end tames the material and standardises it for its presentation on the website. With a pared-down intuitive interface, it is easy for users to find their way around the abundance of entries.
