This year, the 'Talents' promotional programme celebrated its eleventh birthday and, to mark this occasion, selected 'Talents' made presentations in a special exhibition.
They included successful designers such as DING3000, Mark Braun and Sebastian Herkner. Today, their designs are made by renowned companies in serial production.
Other examples of exciting design ideas have been collected in a book by Hansjerg Maier-Aichen, Professor for Product Design at the Karlsruhe Design Academy (Hochschule für Gestaltung). Entitled '10+1 Talents Messe Frankfurt - Eleven Years of Young Design in Progress', the book reviews the careers of the 'Talents' since the first exhibition at Tendence or Ambiente.
