IAI Trophy



In order to maintain innovation, the trophy of the IAI Design Award has changed in shape and material almost every year. Until 2017, Mr. He Changcheng, the chairman of IAI Design Award made a decision to redesign the new IAI trophy in order to have a higher recognition and unified brand image. He personally created and conceived the design concept, and specially invited Mr. Eric Gizard, a famous French designer, to be responsible for the appearance design. Finally, a distinctive trophy with the style of world awards appeared at the IAI Design Award ceremony that year, which  instantly won the attention of countless designers. Afterwards, through many material updates, the trophy has more profound quality and weight, and also demonstrated its temperament and demeanor as a world design award. With the increasing influence of the IAI Design Award, IAI trophy has become one of the most recognized and prestigious awards in the world.


The modeling language of IAI trophy is simple and unique, with free falling building as the basic form, dividing into two colors of gold and silver, and representing different awards and honors. Its structure is composed of three rectangular blocks of different sizes and scales, which  interpreting the three letters of IAI from the original single interior design category into a perfect combination of interior design, architectural design and industrial design. It means 'one to two, two to three, three to all,' which is the quintessence of Chinese Taoist philosophy, showing the track of IAI's growth and the infinity of its future development. In addition, it also integrates Chinese traditional architecture, 'mortise and tenon' structure, which looks like a mutual embrace and rises in layers. It fully embodies IAI's dignified, upright, tolerant, open and courageous life characteristics and "oneness of nature and humanity". At the same time, it conveys the core values of professionalism, rigor and fairness of the IAI Design Award, and upholds the concept of sustainable development that integrates traditional culture and innovation of the times.
