The BRUNO product design award is awarded every two years to an exceptional product or product series, manufactured either at the designer's own initiative, as a collaboration, or as a commission by a manufacturer/entrepreneur. Production-ready prototypes created during the past two years, or industrial products or product series already in production qualify to enter.

On the exhibition you can see the qualified work, which the international jury (Päivi Tahkokallio (Finland), Anthony Luciano (USA), Merike Rehepapp (Estonia), Sergio Davila (Mexico) ja Spyros Bogylatos (Greece)) rated highly enough. Three categories - lifestyle, human environment and engineering - can be seen on the exhibition.


In order to value design and the profession of designer, the Estonian Association of Designers decided in 2006 to start giving out the Estonian Design Award. The first Design Award was given out in the eighties by Tallinn Art Institute Department of Design at the initiative of Bruno Tomberg, after whom the Estonian Design Award has been named. Among the award-winners are experienced professionals like Matti Õunapuu, Heikki Zoova etc. 


Starting from 2012, Estonian Design Awards, including BRUNO, are jointly presented in cooperation with Estonian Design Centre, ADC*Estonia, Estonian Service Industry Association and Estonian Academy of Arts.  Estonian Design Centre organises the Design Awards and gala takes place during the Tallinn Design Festival.

The Estonian Association of Designers wishes to present innovative, high-standard new products to the public that would prompt Estonians to consume domestic design and motivate entrepreneurs to involve professional designers in product development. The recognition would encourage designers to create new interesting products and motivate them to learn about tendencies in design on the international level. For the design-knowledgeable entrepreneur participating in the competition with a designer and the public sector, product development from the aspect of design and design management would bring recognition and would be a good role model for others. In the long-term perspective, the Design Award is a springboard for new products and brands to the international arena.
