The award ceremony of the Luxembourg Design Awards 2023 too place at Rotondes in Luxembourg-Bonnevoie on Thursday 1 June 2023.

The Luxembourg Design Awards, organised by Design Luxembourg, have been showcasing local design expertise and excellence since 2015. The number of applications this year exceeded expectations, according to the organisers, with 270 projects coming from nearly 90 applicants.

An international jury selected the winners in eleven categories based on criteria such as design quality, creativity, relevance, innovation, sustainability and eco-responsibility. This jury was composed of Aurélia de Azambuja of Base Design (Belgium), Hans Fellner, gallerist (Luxembourg), Julia Kahl of Slanted Publishers (Germany), Mellie La Roque of Designers Ethiques (France), Elamine Maecha, freelance graphic designer and typographer (France), and Sophie Van den Keybus, costume designer and artist (Belgium/Luxembourg).

Following the deliberations, Julia Kahl, President of the Jury, said: "The evaluation process sparked passionate and enriching debates. [...] The overall quality of the projects submitted was exceptional and it was difficult to pinpoint winners in each category due to the creativity and skill level displayed by the designers. In summary, the Luxembourg Design Awards showcase talent and innovation within the design community."

This year's results included six gold awards, thirteen silver awards, three jury awards and a special mention for eco-design.

An exhibition of the winning projects is being held at Rotondes until Sunday 4 June 2023, as part of the European Design Festival.
