The competition is open to professionals, students and design enthusiasts from every country in the world and only to individuals who have reached the age of majority.
The competition is organised by Lexus in collaboration with designboom.
We welcome designers from all fields: architecture, product design, fashion.
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 theme for the Lexus Design Award 2017 is “YET”.
The work may be produced in any medium but must be submitted to the contest section as low res JPEG (or JPG) format, GIF format and FLV format for video files.
12 designs will be announced as finalists; 4 of these finalists are chosen to produce prototypes of their design under the mentorship of globally recognized creators. The Sponsor will cover the prototype production costs up to 3 million Yen.
In addition, the 4 Prototype Winners plus 8 additional Panel Finalists will receive a ‘Trip Prize’ to Milan, Italy during Milan Design Week (taking place between April 4-9, 2017) and are required to attend the Lexus Design Award 2017 Exhibition and Ceremony.
