DFF Awards

Design Forum Finland’s awards are intended for reinforcing the competitiveness of companies and showcasing the best Finnish design competence.

Design competence stems from knowing the user, and it is built on the basis of functionality, knowledge of the material and high-class professional competence.

The prizes can be awarded to businesses utilising design, experienced designers and promising young designers, as well as parties doing commendable work for design in society.

Design Forum Finland Awards brings together Design Forum Finland’s design prizes.

In 2022, DFF Awards comprises the Young Designer of the Year prize, the Kaj Franck Design Prize and Fennia Prize 22. The DFF Awards exhibition was on show 5–28 May 2022 in Glasshouse Helsinki, Aleksanterinkatu 23, Helsinki.
