2009 BraunPreis winner has been selected on September 17, 2009 by the guest jurors attending the BraunPrize Forum as:

Johanna Schoemaker
with the project 'Clam I OLED Lamp',
from Bergischen Universität Wuppertal, Germany

Over 160 leading representatives of the design sector from about 18 countries gathered at Braun's headquarters to see the project presentations given by the four finalists whom the five members of the BraunPrize Jury had selected from the original 1074 entries. The task facing the guest jurors at the Forum was all the more difficult as the finalists put so much care and effort into preparing and delivering their presentations.

Award ceremony and opening of the exhibition
There was a real feeling of suspense in the run-up to the award ceremony at which Peter Schneider, Jury Charmain, announced the winner. More than 1000 guests joined then the subsequent celebration.

The BraunPrize Event was a great success and provided an ideal opportunity for the participants to meet and exchange ideas with new acquaintances and to meet friends from all over the world.

The event videos and photo impressions will be available on www.braunprize.com in the next days.

The other finalists were:

Stephan Zimmermann with the project 'Anemone', from the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt, Germany.

Tobias Stuntebeck with the project 'White Cane', from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover, Germany.

Karsten Willmann with the project 'Skylino', from the University of Applied Sciences HTW-Dresden, Germany.

These three finalists can also regard themselves as BraunPrize winners as they each receive a prize of EURO 5,000. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the winners and all the participants.

Overall winner got a prize of EUR 12,000 and in addition she can do a six-month internship in the Braun design department.

The Jury decided to give a prize of EUR 500 for each of the 18 projects with design model in the BraunPreis Exhibition.
