The Designs Of The Year 2013A Room For London, Jacqueline Durran's Anna Karenina Costumes, and Renzo Piano's Shard are shortlisted for the Designs of the Year awards. These shortlisted works are among the objects displayed at the Design Museum's exhibition, the result of a search for the most innovative designs of the year. Billed as 'the Oscars of the design world', beautifully designed pieces cross a whole range of categories including architecture, fashion, furniture and transport. A high profile judging panel decides the best entries in each of the seven categories and one overall winner who is announced to the public on 17th April 2013. Contenders will be hoping to take the mantle from last year's winners, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, who were awarded the prize for their design of the London 2012 Olympic Torch.

 

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.
