THE 2018 AWARD

The Lexus Design Award 2018 was the biggest yet in the history of the competition with a record number of entries. The theme for 2018, “CO-”, was an approach that allowed Lexus to explore its true potential and that of the environment by creating new possibilities through collaboration, coordination and connection.

2018 JUDGES

Each year, Lexus works with a world-class panel of judges to select the 12 finalists who best embody the yearly changing theme. Four of the 12 selected finalists then go on to receive individual mentorship from established global designers, prototype funding to bring their visions to life, and an invitation to exhibit at the Lexus Design Event during Milan Design Week, where one Grand Prix award winner will be announced by the judges.
