Design Prize Switzerland was held in 1991 for the first time. The competition, which is held every two years, is designed to boost the importance of Swiss design, so prizes are awarded for outstanding performance in seven professional fields. In a two-phase procedure, the projects submitted are nominated by acknowledged specialists for consideration by the jury. The jury, composed of international experts, then awards prizes to the best of the nominated works.
The high prestige of Design Prize Switzerland in the Swiss design scene is based on its being focused on the market economy, and on the fact that it undergone ongoing development. Its increase in significance is also partly attributable to the international travelling exhibition, which drew a lot of attention to the prizewinning entries in 2009 and 2011.
