Beazley Designs of the Year 2017
The Beazley Designs of the year exhibition in the Design Museum has opened to the public on 18 October with great reviews.
This exhibition comprises 62 nominations across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Graphics, Product and Transport. The exhibition and awards showcases some of the most original and exciting products, concepts and designers in the world today.
Here are some projects that might inspire you refining your designs and presentation:
Nimuno Loops by Chrome Cherry Design Studio:
This was a crowdfunding idea that has become viral in its first week. The idea is simple: a flexible lego tape. This allows you to create on almost anything and the best part of all: it is made to be reusable. The exhibition has a corner just dedicated to this project where you can experiment and play this cleaver idea.
OTHR by Joe Doucet, Dean Disimone and Evan Clabots
This studio is competing in the Digital category and their proposal is to make everyday life objects using 3D printing made out of porcelain, bronze and steel. On their website, the designers state that they create useful, beautiful and uniquely designed products with minimal impact on the environment.
Alphabet of Light by Big- Bjarke Ingels Group for Artemide
This group of Danish designers created a modular lighting system that with the right combinations can create letters of the alphabet. The series is made out of bent and straight elements of LED strip light which are joined together by magnets, with the intention to make assembly easy for the user.
Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit (ART) by CRRC Zhuzhou Institute
ART is an intelligent rail system which aims at creating new, self-driving, electric tram that’s guided not by tracks, but a double-dashed line painted on the street. It sounds like the future is here!
The Beazley Designs of the Year 2017 exhibition with these and many more surprising designs will be open until the 28 January 2018 so there is plenty of time to catch up and vote on your favourite design!
