Lexus Announces 12 Winners of Second Lexus Design Award

January 30, 2014
TORRANCE, Calif., (Jan. 30, 2014) — Lexus announces the selection of 12 winners for the second Lexus Design Award, an international design competition that was launched on August 1 last year.

1,157 submissions were received during the application period, which ended on October 15, 2013. From that group, 12 winners have been selected after careful consideration by six judges. More details can be found at http://www.lexus-int.com/design/lda.html.

The designers of two winning entries will create prototypes of their designs in close collaboration with one of two assigned mentors: Arthur Huang and Robin Hunicke. The two prototypes, together with panel displays of the other 10 winning entries, will be exhibited in the Lexus space at Milan Design Week in April.
The Lexus Design Award is an international competition that targets up-and-coming innovators from around the world. The Lexus Design Award is an opportunity for designers to create work that is then displayed at one of the design calendar’s most important events. Through this initiative, Lexus hopes to nurture and support world-enriching creators.
