Today, London’s Design Museum celebrates the sixth annual Designs of the Year awards with an exhibition showcasing the work of the 90 nominees. Yes, 90.

The concept is to celebrate original design and its designers, and to us, the sheer scope of the nominated designs is mind-boggling. It runs the gamut from a prototype non-stick ketchup bottle to Europe’s tallest building, the Shard.
