Lexus Design
Award 2019

Design for a
better tomorrow.

Anticipate. Innovate. Captivate.

About the Award

Lexus Design Award calls upon young creative talent around the world to “Design for a Better Tomorrow”. Since 2013, this international design competition has provided the chance of a lifetime for up-and-coming designers to win the prestigious award for innovative design excellence, fund and build their prototype with world-class mentors, and reach unparalleled exposure by exhibiting at Milan Design Week.

Guiding Principles

Through the “Design for a better tomorrow” directive, we’re looking for design that goes beyond the mastery of shape, form and function, and becomes a solution to overcome challenges by incorporating three principles fundamental to Lexus: “Anticipate. Innovate. Captivate.” Designs will anticipate the needs of the user experience as well as benefit society, while demonstrating innovation with fresh, imaginative solutions, and captivate their audience.

2019 JUDGES

Each year, Lexus works with a world-class panel of judges to select finalists who best embody Lexus' guiding principles. The six selected finalists will 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.
