for the sixth year in a row, designboom collaborates with LEXUS to present the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2018—a competition that supports future creators who can enrich the world by finding solutions to better shape our society and future. by providing the opportunity to embody unique ideas, develop and exhibit prototypes through sessions with world-famous designers as mentors, we hope to help next generation talent flourish.


the theme of this year’s LEXUS DESIGN AWARD is ‘CO-‘, a latin prefix meaning together or in partnership. this expresses how Lexus seeks the harmonious coexistence of nature and society through sustainable design. ‘CO-‘ is an approach that allows Lexus to explore their potential and that of our environment by creating new possibilities through collaboration, coordination and connection.


we welcome creatives from all fields: architecture, product design, fashion, etc. we’re looking for design that goes beyond the mastery of shape, form and function, and becomes a process and solution to overcome challenges.


the registration period of the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2018 is now open, and qualifying submissions should be received by october 8th, 2018, 11:59 PM (CET). for more information on the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2018, read the full call-for-entries and official rules.
