Mutabor Agency of the Year

Red Dot Gala and Designers' Night
Posted by Gestalten—10/2013

This year, Hamburg based design agency Mutobar not only celebrates the company's 20th anniversary, tonight they are also receiving the Red Dot Award as the Agency of the Year 2013! On top of that, their third publication in the Lingua book series, Lingua Digitalis, is slated to take home the prestigious "Best of the Best" for Communication Design. Robert Klanten will be sharing a few words with audiences at the award ceremony tonight. 

The awarding ceremony will bring together the design industry's top names to honor the winners of this year’s Red Dot Award. The coveted trophies will be handed over in front of more than 1200 international guests at Konzerthaus Berlin. The celebrations will then continue with the Designers' Night at Umspannwerk Alexanderplatz including an exhibition of the winning works, which will be on show until Sunday, October 20.

Our newly released book C20 tells the story and pays tribute to the people behind Mutabor's success. It revisits the place and moment where everything began: the room C20 at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design. A book launch was held with founders Heinrich Paravicini and Johannes Plass at Gestalten Space last evening. Have a look at the event photos.
