International Marianne Brandt Award

Throughout the whole world, the works of the Bauhaus member, designer and artist Marianne Brandt can be found in the leading museums and collections. But Marianne Brandt’s legacy is no longer simply a piece of design history – every three years in her home city of Chemnitz international designers and artists get together to show their current work in the dynamic field between the polarities of design and art. Here, the International Marianne Brandt Award founded in 2001 and since then organised by Villa Arte e. V. Chemnitz selects not only product designs but also photography and other artistic formats.

With the motto “The Poetry of the Functional”, the prize pursues the question of where and how projects that are useful as well as inspiring thrive today in Marianne Brandt’s former fields of activity.
