The event brought together designers and design theorists from in and around Berlin for a conversation around the possibilities of AI and what this new era means for design and the work of the designer.
IF Gold statement: The LIGRE coffeemaker evinces both high-end craftmanship and bespoke material selection in every detail. It departs radically from the dominant archetypes of coffee machines, emphasizing the sense of ritual inherent in preparing coffee. In every sense an icon.
IF Gold statement: The Pony is an ingenious desk and stool combo designed for flexible collaborative spaces. With its playful use of curved forms and soft colors, it provides a relaxing and casual seating arrangement while pushing the boundaries of plywood design.
We’re very happy to see Samsung’s BESPOKE Infinite Line Package being awarded with the iF DESIGN Gold Award 2023! Congratulations to Samsung’s Design Team! We at RELVĀOKELLERMANN are proud to have contributed a little with the Infinite Line Oven.

Jury statement: J*GAST, the kitchen furniture system developed by Holzrausch, is based on an innovative frame rather than a conventional body construction. This allows for savings of up to 45% in materials and thus valuable resources, minimising its carbon footprint. In addition, the combination of flush and overlapping fronts and the recessed profile create a characteristic joint pattern that makes the kitchen distinctive. It is a great solution that lies between an individual kitchen and a standardised industrial solution, which is also sustainable.
These new built-in ovens add a finishing touch to the most exquisite European kitchen. They can be installed side by side or stacked depending on needs. Satin, a cutting-edge glass, was used for the oven doors. The glass adds to the overall aesthetics and blends seamlessly into the matte exterior of the surrounding kitchen cabinetry. The simple, sleek bar handle gives an understated feel to the flawless look. The matte texture on the haptic knob combined with minimalist controls gives a sense of reliability while providing intuitive control.
The best novelties of each design year are honored with the Stylepark Selected Award. Whether typological and design diversity, innovative and smart or sustainable and aesthetically attractive – the novelties honored by the Stylepark Selected Award jury are united by their outstanding design quality. “
Jury statement: The “pipo” table by Relvãokellermann for gumpo appears solid, but offers maximum flexibility: the structure of rectangular or square top and round legs is surprisingly lightweight, can be assembled without tools, is individually adaptable and can be electrified with concealed cable routing. Thanks to the structure in the core of the top, there is no need for reinforcing metal crossbars and virtually all components are made of wood-based materials. “pipo” can therefore be manufactured in individual sizes according to requirements.
