GIDA 2020 – Goldreed Industrial Design Award – is the new international design award sponsored by the Xiongan Future Industrial Design Institute, with the aim of promoting at international level the concept of “harmony” applied to design.
Drawing from the scientific-technological progress and from the social changes that are currently happening in our society, GIDA aims at using design as a way to suggest new lifestyles, in order to contribute to the balanced development between human and nature.
The award has the objective of becoming a major reference in the international design field, by providing a very important award pool, a renown jury, international partnerships and sponsorships.
In the first edition of the award, in partnership with Desall, it addresses designers, architects, design studios, companies, universities and other institutes from around the world, to send their applications with products on the market or unpublished concepts.
