•    Sustainability of materials and technologies takes center stage

•    Competition entries on the mobility of the future

•    Two students from Berlin share prize money in the special category "Student"

Outstanding technology and design products were honored with the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award on the night of October, 16, as part of the eMove360° Europe 2018 – International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 and Urban & Mobile Design in Munich.

More than a dozen companies and organizations, ranging from Tier 1 automotive suppliers to specialized small and medium-sized companies, in the categories Material, Surface & Technology, Product and CO2 Efficiency received the internationally recognized award at the festive award ceremony followed by an exhibitors and visitors party.

 Four submissions received the "Best Of" award as winners of their category. The Student Award, which is endowed with prize money of 1,000 euros, went to Youyang Song of the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin for a process for the recovery of textiles from biological waste inspired by molecular kitchen and Nadia Narges Rezaei of the University of Arts in Berlin for a sports bra, which is produced individually on the basis of a 3D body scan.

Competition entries focusing on New Mobility

"These two submissions show the broad range that the MATERIALICA Award covers, especially with the student submissions: Othe one hand we have awarded a mature product with a professional appearance, on the other hand fundamental research with an experimental character, which still has to find its way to a finished product or technology.

In the four main categories we have again seen very different submissions – from beautiful design pieces to important materials and technologies for electric mobility and connected and autonomous driving, the two central themes of our trade fair. We congratulate all winners very warmly" says Robert Metzger, Managing Director of MunichExpo and organizer of the award.

Nina Saller, Director of the strategic design consultancy XbeyondS and jury chairwoman of this year's MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award, adds: "We are delighted that the quality of the competition entries continues to increase overall. In addition to a high level of innovation, sustainability is becoming more and more important – both in the submissions and for us as a jury in the evaluation of the competition entries. "

In the Materials category, Chemours has been awarded the Best Of Award for a new cable technology specifically designed for real-time data processing in autonomous vehicles or Internet of Things applications. MDT Sonnenschutzsysteme received the award in the Product category for a textile solar carport. C

ovestro won the Best Of Award in the category CO2 Efficiency for a sustainable paint curing agent, Continental in the Surface & Technology category for its Morphing Controls technology, which allows completely new design and operating concepts to be implemented in the interior of future vehicle generations.
