The organisers

The German Design Award is presented by the German Design Council, the national brand and design authority responsible for the high-level task of representing German design. Established as a foundation in 1953 at the initiative of the German Parliament, the German Design Council helps the business world consistently strive to achieve brand value through design. This makes it a world-leading centre of expertise for communication and brand guidance within the field of design. The exclusive network of foundation members not only includes professional associations and institutions but also, and in particular, the owners and brand drivers of many well-known companies.

About the company:

Since 2007, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, headquartered in Raubling, Upper Bavaria, has successfully developed and sold cooktop extractor systems that draw vapours downwards thanks to the use of patented technology. The innovative BORA Basic, BORA Classic and BORA Professional product ranges are now sold in 58 countries worldwide.

BORA founder Willi Bruckbauer has a vision: the end of the extractor hood. The patented product that he has developed offers multiple benefits: the high-quality systems are more effective than conventional extractor hoods, very quiet, energy saving and easy to clean. They enable maximum design freedom for kitchens and a clear view.
