london design museum announces designs of the year 2015 nominees

 

 

 

in its eighth year, the london design museum‘s ‘designs of the year‘ announces the nominees for 2015. the annual award acknowledges the global breadth of creativity and design talent across the diverse sectors of architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, product, and transport design.

 

the 2015 shortlist of 76 studios and design practitioners — from over thirty countries across five continents — which include emerging practices, as well as some of the industry’s biggest names, were selected by design academics, experts and practitioners from across the world which the design museum invited to suggest potential projects. over the course of the next couple of months a prestigious jury composed of anish kapoor, artist (chair of the committee); nicole farhi, sculptor and fashion designer; tom lloyed, pearsonloyd; and farshid moussavi, architect and professor at harvard GSD (more to be announced), will review the nominations and select the category winners (announced on monday, may 4th), with the overall winner being revealed at an event at the design museum on thursday, june 4th.

 

the 2015 ‘designs of the year’ cover a wide-ranging scope of issues, and provide a snapshot of contemporary concerns in the creative world. here is a look at this years nominees:
