Award ceremony – purmundus challenge 2020

The international competition of ideas for 3D and 4D printing breaks new ground in the field of product design and announces the winners of the purmundus challenge 2020.

On the 11 November 2020 at 1 p.m. (UTC+1) we will take a look on the AM market, talk about materials and simulation driven design and of course our international panel will present you the winners of the purmundus challenge 2020. This is the fifth time that the 3D and 4D printing award for the purmundus challenge will be presented at the Formnext. This year’s competition shines a spotlight on 35 forward-looking product ideas from 13 countries on 5 continents under the motto “Geometry and Material in Harmony”.


Receiving an award as part of the purmundus challenge is seen as one of the most important design-related distinctions in the field of 3D and 4D printing. In addition to the first three places, the purmundus challenge will also feature awards in the categories of “Special Mention” and “Simulation-Driven Design”, as well as an “Innovation Prize” and, for the first time, a “Newcomer Prize”. Winning designers receive support in the form of an extensive winner’s package. The prizewinners set strong trends with an international focus in the design industry in the field of 3D and 4D printing, and highlight potential future directions.


The winner of the “Public Choice Award”, which is determined using the external PollUnit platform after the 22 November 2020, completes the purmundus challenge. The awards are worth a total of 30,000 euros.
