LEXUS DESIGN AWARD

each year the theme of the international competition changes with the aim to challenge creatives in designing for the future through different but equally important perspectives. the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2019 features a more universal directive to ‘design for a better tomorrow and queries how design thinking can solve everyday problems. with this, designers are asked to consider how their ideas focus on three fundamental principles at the core of the LEXUS brand: anticipate, innovate, and captivate. 

 

the finalist designers will commence their mentorship program in new york city in january, where, with the expert advice of their renowned designer/mentor, they will be able to realize their best designs through previously unforeseen avenues such as new materials, communication methods and more. this year mentors include co-founder and creative director of nervous system, jessica rosenkrantz; partner and director of OMA new york, shoehei shigematsu; and the newest mentor – co-founder and design director of established & sons, sebastian wrong.

the significant funding for prototype production – up to 3 million JPY – enables finalists to realize their designs that were once only conceptual. as every upcoming designers’ dream, this work will then be presented at a landmark exhibition during the milan design week 2019 – the most important event on the international design calendar and the moment to expand their career network.
