Good Design makes the World
a better place

Born in Milan, with an international soul

Founded in Milan (2015) by Patrick Abbattista, DesignWanted is a media company created to celebrate the best Design by supporting the business development of designers and companies, on an international scale.

Thanks to a community of over 1,000,000 people and collaborations with the most important international events such as Milan Design Week, Dutch Design Week, Dubai Design Week, Design Shanghai and many others, it is considered one of the most influential voices in the industry, on a global scale.

We aim to empower Product and Industrial Designers by providing them with the knowledge, tools and opportunities for a conscious and sustainable progress of humanity.

Why the DesignWanted Award?

The Award aims to honor designers and businesses that are solving the world’s current problems, anticipating the needs of tomorrow, and creating the most innovative design ideas for smarter homes and more sustainable living.

In support of the democratic nature of design, the programme allows anyone with talent to compete whilst offering unique access to the most prestigious design event hosted in the heart of the world’s design capital—Milan Design Week.

Through the DesignWanted Award, we aim to give the international design community an accessible and valuable business and visibility opportunity.
