Designs of the Year 2014Now in its seventh year, the Design Museum's annual Designs of the Year awards have become a much anticipated feature of the design calender. Past winners have included the Plumen lightbulb, a folding plug and the 2012 Olympic Torch. In 2014, the 76 nominations include global stars like Zaha Hadid and John Pawson, David Chipperfield and Miuccia Prada alongside smaller startups and student initiatives. There's something for everyone as the awards cover seven categories: architecture, digital, fashion, furniture, graphic design, transport and product design. Shortlisted nominations, chosen by a high-profile judging panel, will be on display from 26th March, with the winners, including one overall champion, announced in May. Last year's innovation of an additional public vote will be repeated this year.

 

About Design Museum

Located on the banks of the Thames, the Design Museum has two floors and showcases contemporary design in all forms, including fashion, graphic and architectural. There are two main galleries, and the collections trace the history of design developments, from the origins of mass production to contemporary works. More about Design Museum
