For the first time, the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam confers the design award "Pappel", on the occasion of the DMY. The students of the faculty of design evaluate freely from commercial interests. Courageous drafts, trend-setting products and inspiring concepts will be awarded. There are no pre-selection, no categories. The FHP jury as well as the student audience will award each a price for the objects of the DMY. The design award "Pappel" is a snapshot of contemporary design, from the point of view of the designers of tomorrow.
