LEXUS DESIGN AWARDS FINALISTS ANNOUNCED

LEXUS DESIGN AWARDS FINALISTS ANNOUNCED

The 12 finalists for the prestigious Lexus Design Award 2018 have been announced on 31 January 2018. Now in its sixth year, the design competition invites young designers to propose ideas based on this year’s theme “CO-“, derived from the Latin prefix meaning “with or together in harmony”. “CO-” explores the possibilities of how design can seek solutions and overcome barriers for a range of global challenges by harmonious integration of nature and society. 

This year’s installment involved an unprecedented level of participation attracting over 1300 entries from 68 countries. 

Twelve finalists were chosen after considerable deliberation by a panel of prestigious judges. Among the 12 finalists, four, listed below, were selected to prototype their designs under the guidance and mentorship of an elite team of established creators: Lindsey Adelman, Jessica Walsh, Sou Fujimoto and Formafantasma.

Extrapolation Factory - Christopher Woebken (Germany) & Elliott P. Montgomery (USA)

The four prototypes and detailed presentation boards from the other eight finalists’ designs will be showcased as part of the Lexus Design Event at this year’s Milan Design Week in April. The 12 finalists will present their work to the judging panel and international media. Following the presentation, a Grand Prix Winner will be selected.
