Design for a better tomorrow
The 2020 Lexus Design Award called upon next generation creators from around the world to "Design for a better tomorrow". Of the 2,042 entries from 79 countries, only one Grand Prix winner will be selected from a shortlist of six finalists, based on three key Lexus principles: Anticipate, Innovate, Captivate.
The six finalists have used innovative techniques and materials to highlight the interplay between design and technology. In many cases, they have incorporated biodegradable materials and used renewable energy sources.
