Designs of the Year 2015 nominees announced

Frank Gehry’s Foundation Louis Vuitton, BMW’s i8 sports car and Konstantin Grcic’s Man Machine furniture collection for Galerie Kreo are amongst the 76 projects nominated for the Designs of the Year 2015 awards organized by London’s Design Museum. Now in its eighth year, this annual award celebrates design that “promotes or delivers chance, enables access, extends design practice or captures the spirit of the year”. The nominees are selected from a larger list of projects suggested by design experts, practitioners and academics from across the world. The jury chaired by Anish Kapoor and including members’ designed-turned-sculptor Nicole Farhi and architect Farshid Moussavi amongst others, will announce the winners in each of the six categories on 4th June, 2015.
