Shortlist revealed for Beazley Designs of the Year
The nominees for this year’s Beazley Designs of the Year have been revealed by the Design Museum.
Now in its 12th year, the annual exhibition and awards includes 76 nominations across six categories: architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, product and transport. The shortlist has been agreed by a panel of international designers, curators, critics and – for the first time – the general public, and showcases impactful products and concepts from designers around the world.
A winner will be selected in each category and one overall winner will be announced on 21 November 2019.
Previous winners have included Forensic Architecture for its Counter Investigations Exhibition; Sir David Adjaye OBE for the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC; London 2012 Olympic Torch by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby; and Human Organs-on-Chips by Donald Ingber and Dan Dongeun Huh at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute.
As a specialist insurer Beazley is well placed to understand the value of good design and is proud to partner with the Design Museum and to support the Beazley Designs of the Year.
Sketches, models, prototypes, videos and photography will be on display from 11 September 2019 – 9 February 2020 at the Design Museum’s home in Kensington, London.
