Formex Formidable

The annual design award Formex Formidable rewards interesting, qualitative and contemporary design.

The prize was established in 1994 to inspire and encourage excellent design. Each year, 20 designer objects are nominated, and to be qualified for a nomination, the object should be new and contemporary and exhibited at Formex in either January or August the current year.

Formex Formidable consists of a jury award and a People's Choice award where the general public votes for a winner among the nominees.
