Glory of Taiwan Design Exhibition


Important design awards worldwide: the Golden Pin Design Award of Taiwan, iF and reddot of Germany, IDEA of the US, and GOOD DESIGN AWARD of Japan. All these awards are where top designers compete with their ingeniousness. Made in Taiwan (MIT) products have taken home an increasing number of prizes in these five occasions. Every new record we make strengthens our faith in the promise of MIT design and proves to the world Taiwan’s presence in this field.

2011 is the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Republic of China, as well as Taiwan’s “Year of Design.” To honor this rare occasion, MIT products attained unprecedented success with record-breaking numbers of all prizes and of first prizes. MIT design won 102 prizes in iF Germany, including 7 iF Golds, second only to the hosting country (370 prizes) and Japan (110 prizes), both of which have a well-developed design industry. In reddot Germany, designers from Taiwan took home 92 of the 1,007 prizes, an increase of 35% in total number of prices compared to last year; what’s more, 6 among these 92 prizes are first prizes. The achievement not only broke the record of Taiwan’s past participation in reddot but also set us at the top of Asian countries in the field of design. Now we can say with confidence that design is the pride of Taiwan.

In this show, we include all awarded MIT designs in 2011. Visitors shall have a chance to see for themselves how these products won international recognition.
