The IPI received the most design applications for the ‘clocks, watches and other measuring instruments’ category — for the fourth time in a row.
Here you will find key figures and information on design protection at the IPI. Designs are new, creative forms that can be protected by registering them with the IPI. This includes two-dimensional designs such as fabric patterns or bottle labels as well as shapes of watches, lamps and chairs. In 2020, most registrations were in the ‘clocks, watches and other measuring instruments’ category.
Most designs registered with the IPI were for the category 'furniture'. The ‘packaging’ and ‘watches and measuring instruments' (Class 14, Locarno Agreement) categories followed in second and third place.
