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. Essentially, candidates from around the world are placed into seven categories: architecture, digital, fashion, furniture, graphic, product, and transport.
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.
The exhibition runs till July 7 and the winners of the categories as well as the overall winner will be announced next month. Make a beeline to see the designs destined to set your world ablaze, right now, before you're the only one at dinner who hasn't been yet.
