The prize, which has been presented by the Design Zentrum NRW since 1955, is awarded by a jury of experts for works which exhibit an outstanding level of design quality. Criteria include the degree of innovation, functionality and ecological compatibility. Designers, architects and companies from 54 countries submitted almost 4,700 of their best products this year in 19 different categories.

The manufacturer of laboratory and glass instruments and precision capillaries has been developing problem solutions for its customers since 1964 for applications in the medical laboratory, research and industry. 24 patent families are currently in production or under development. The rotarus® series of the peristaltic pump family sees Hirschmann taking the leap into the world of continuous dispensing pumps.
