Every year, the Design Museum showcases the world's most innovative designs in the Beazley Designs of the Year awards and exhibition. To celebrate the museum's 30th anniversary, this year the public are invited to nominate their favourite design from the last twelve months.
This year’s round up of world class innovation is split into six categories including Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Product, Graphics and Transport.
The Design Museum is asking the public to look over the last twelve months and share:
Designs that inspire you
Designs that represent change in their field
Designs that capture this moment in time
Designs that create access
Designs that represent thought leadership
The Design Museum and curators will collate all suggested projects and create a shortlist of nominations that will also include the usual design expert nominations.
This year’s exhibiton will be curated by Beatrice Galilee, Associate Curator of Architecture and Design at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Beatrice was the Chief Curator of the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Close, Closer, and has curated exhibitions and events around the world. Previous curators include: Aric Chen and Glenn Adamson.
Commenting on this year's exhibition and nominations Beatrice said:
“I’m thrilled to be working with the Design Museum on this year’s Beazley Designs of the Year show. It can feel like incredible products, spaces and ideas pop up in and then disappear from our screens every minute. This exhibition will be the opposite; a chance to take in and walk through a whole year of the world’s best design in one space. It will be particularly fascinating to see the nature of nominations from the public. I’m very intrigued!”
Beazley Designs of the Year will be on display from 11 September 2019.
The shortlist of design projects included in this year’s exhibition will be announced on 10 September 2019.
