Lexus today announced the four winning entries of Lexus Design Award 2023, the international design competition that recognizes up-and-coming creators.
The three-judge panel of Paola Antonelli, Karim Rashid and Simon Humphries selected the winners from among 2,068 entries representing 63 countries and regions. Judging criteria were based on Lexus' fundamental principles for creating a prosperous society and a better future: Anticipate, Innovate, Captivate, and Enhance Happiness.
Winning entries for the 11th Lexus Design Award continue with the tradition of addressing issues and trends of the times under the theme of “Design for a Better tomorrow”. The four vigorous winning proposals aim at resolving particular social issues to help prepare for the decades ahead.
Speaking about the competition after selection of the four winners, judge Paola Antonelli commented, “Having served as a judge since the first Lexus Design Award, I appreciate, all the more, the generosity, talent, and energy of hundreds of young designers from around the world, and continue to note the design field’s evolution, as these designers take an increasingly visionary and yet realistic view that encompasses not only humanity, but also all the rest of nature”.
