THE DESIGN PRIZE has become an institution of the city of milan. the third edition of the international award celebrating design excellence inaugurates milan design week 2019. the unique program, curated by designboom, recognizes both the extraordinary achievements and little sparks of beauty and delight that have emerged over the past 12 months.

On april 9th, 2019, the award ceremony will be hosted at triennale milano, in partnership with the order of architects and under the patronage of the municipality of milan. the highly-anticipated event cements its status as a democratic, free and participatory design award, which calls on the international creative community for nominations. the evening will see 10 winners presented with the iconic golden madonnina award — a ceramic statuette that has been designed and realized for the occasion by antonio aricò. THE DESIGN PRIZE gala is produced by PRY.
