New Material Award

The New Material Award introduces the designs of the future. The biennial award challenges visual artists, designers and architects to use new materials and innovative techniques. The resulting designs will contribute to a better and more sustainable society.

The prize has two distinctions: the New Material Award with a cash prize of € 15,000 for a finished product, and the New Material Fellow, a fellowship at Het Nieuwe Instituut plus € 5.000, for a detailed idea to which a research question has been linked.
