Previous winners range from Zaha Hadid’s Heydar Aliyev Center and the London 2012 Olympic torch in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Entering its ninth embodiment, the awards, sponsored by the Design Museum in London, feature a raft of new nominees from all possible walks of design. The six groups, divided to the areas of images, digital, fashion, architecture, merchandise and transportation, are symbolized by 67 people and cooperation from all possible corners of the world.
High profile nominees range from the Tate Modern Switch House on London’s Southbank and Bjarke Ingels’ “courtscraper”, VIA 57 West in New York. On the scale that is smaller there is nods to some drinkable novel, that guides users who will then rip a page out and use its germ-killing paper to filter water. Videogames and sTI testing kits additionally make the various shortlists, which focus on practical answers to everyday issues, but also excellence, sophistication.
