The design with the most votes on August 26th will be crowned the winner of INDEX: People's Choice Award - and between all the votes for the winning design, we will pick a lucky winner, who gets to go to the award show with a friend.

INDEX: People's Choice Award 2011 is kindly sponsored by renowned Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen, and the winner will receive "The Egg" - a beautiful chair designed by famous Danish designer Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen.

During the competition, everyone can vote for their own personal INDEX: favorite. You can vote for as many different designs as you like, and you can vote as many times as you like. Good luck!

In 2009, at the INDEX: Award Ceremony; Jean Madden from Brisbane, Australia, was declared the winner of the People’s Choice Award. The winning design, Street Swags, is a bed and a bag designed to provide more comfort, warmth and protection from weather for people living on the street. Read more about Street Swags.

In 2007, the winner of the People’s Choice Award was Danish designer Hân Pham. She won the prize for the design of Antivirus; a yellow plastic cap that turns beverage cans into a container for used needles. Read more about Antivirus:

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
