Bayern Design

Bayern Design

Our Vision:

The main goal of bayern design GmbH is to develop the sustainable enhancement of the design quality of Bavarian products and services so that the State of Bavaria becomes a premier site for innovation and design of international renown.

All programs and activies of bayern design GmbH are sponsored by the Bavarian State Ministry for the Economy, Infrastructure, Traffic and Technology.

As the central contact for Bavarian companies – particularly for the middle market – bayern design compiles, coordinates and supports all design activities in Bavaria and promotes Bavaria as an important factor for success. In doing so, bayern design takes into consideration the regional economic competences of the seven government districts, demonstrating new perspectives for each of the industries and paving the way for the fruitful blend of design into corporate strategies.

bayern design is sponsored not only by the Bavarian State Ministry, but also by bayern design forum e.V., its supporting association, whose members come from the most diverse sectors in Bavaria. The majority of the members are medium-sized companies and agencies that benefit from each other through the design networks. Moreover, bayern design closely cooperates with the chambers of industry, commerce and crafts, with trade associations, educational institutions as well as several companies and individuals.
