About the MCB Design Award
The MCB Design Prize has been held since 1986 by the Museu da Casa Brasileira. The award, the most traditional and prestigious of the segment in the country, reveals talents and dedicates professionals and companies. The Prize is divided into two main moments: the Poster Contest and then the award of the products and written works.
Between June and August, MCB receives creations (prototypes or in production) in the categories: Construction, Transportation, Electronics, Lighting, Furniture, Textiles, Utensils and Written Works. The works are analyzed by two independent judging commissions, one for the product categories and the other for theoretical work. Finally, the winners are chosen, divided between 1st and 2nd places and honorable mentions, besides the finalists of the edition.
As a result of the MCB Design Award, the Museum holds a show with winners and selected from each category of the edition, which is on display for about two months.
