LONDON — The Design Museum has announced its nominees for their annual award recognizing the best in global design.
Over 90 contenders spread across seven categories were selected by a panel of industry experts. Costumes from the movie “Anna Karenina” designed by Jacqueline Durran, the Olympic Cauldron by Heatherwick Studio, The Shard designed by Renzo Piano, and the Louis Vuitton Collection by Japanese artist YayoiKusama were among the designs that were nominated.
The Design Museum's Designs of the Year award is in its sixth year and recognizes international talent in seven areas: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Product, and Transport. The winners from each category and an overall winner will be crowned in April.
Veteran designer Zaha Hadid has been nominated twice this year for her work on the Galaxy Soho building in Beijing and the Liquid Glacial Table, which resembles running water. The late architect Louis Kahn, who passed away in 1974, has also been recognized for his work on Four Freedoms Park in New York, which was finally completed late last year.
