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.” As with "Solgami", the 2019 LDA Finalist shown above, designs anticipate the needs of the user experience as well as benefit society, while demonstrating innovation with fresh, imaginative solutions, and captivate their audience.

THE FINALISTS

This year’s finalists found original and inventive solutions which highlight the creative interplay between design and technology. The finalists’ concepts and designs feature a diverse range of innovative craftsmanship techniques, materials and applications. In many cases, they incorporate biodegradable materials, use renewable energy sources and reduce our carbon footprint.
