Beazley Designs of the Year 2018
The Design Museum
London, UK, 12 September 2018 – 06 January 2019
Now in its eleventh year, Beazley Designs of the Year is the Design Museum’s annual celebration of the most original and exciting products, concepts and designers in the world today. Explore how the future is fast becoming the present with newly-developed materials, innovative ways of managing scarce resources, playful designs for all ages and local communities claiming new spaces for themselves.
The international awards and exhibition showcase design projects from the previous 12 months, across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Product, Graphics, and Transport. Design experts, practitioners and academics from across the world are asked by the Design Museum to suggest potential projects, from which the museum has selected 87 for nomination to display in the exhibition. A specially selected jury will choose a winner for each category and an overall winner – to be announced in November 2018.
For the 2018 edition, Forensic Architecture won the Design of the Year award for our investigation into chemical weapons attacks in Douma, Syria.
