The Design Prize of the State North Rhine-Westphalia was awarded for the third time on 5th December 1991. Economics Minister Günter Einert awarded the prize in the course of a festive event held in the Town Hall of Essen. Once again this year, the opportunity was taken to commend industrial products whose outstanding and exemplary design lends impetus to industrial development. The competition is intended to highlight the significance of design as a factor of high product quality.
As in previous years, a BEGA luminaire was again honoured with an award. The jury decided in favour of the pole-top luminaire 8081.
Economics Minister Günter Einert handed the State Prize 1991 to Heinrich Gantenbrink during the official ceremony. Also in the picture are Anette Jäger, Lady Mayoress of the City of Essen and Dr. Peter Zec, Managing Director of the Design Centre Essen.
