A Look At This Year’s Lexus Product Design Award Winners

Finalists range from a soap bubble inspired lamp to a fort-building kit for kids.

The second annual Lexus Design Award challenged designers from around the globe to submit product ideas based on the theme of ‘curiosity’. 1,157 submissions were narrowed down to 12 finalists by a panel of six judges including design journalists, architects and curators.

The 12 finalist projects will be exhibited in the Lexus space at the 2014 Milan Design Week in April. Two winning designs, “Iris” by Sebastian Scherer and “Macian” by James Fox will be prototyped specially for the show. The Lexus Design Award aims to challenge up-and-coming designers and innovators to search for new ideas and offer the chance to exhibit at one of the worlds’ premiere design festivals.
