IDZ – International Design Center Berlin


Design is a people-centered approach to create positive change.

Founded in 1968, the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ) is a leading, independent German design institution. We promote design as a driver for business and social innovation.

Our multidisciplinary member network provides knowledge and expertise from diverse fields and industries. We connect the design field with businesses, foster knowledge exchange and implement projects and events. We work in active exchange with representatives from politics, culture and science at national and international levels.

Responding to people’s actual needs, design methods integrate functional, emotional and social elements across products, processes and services. As a driver of innovation, design plays a key role in addressing societal, environmental and economic challenges.
