Lexus International announced the 12 finalists for the Lexus Design Award 2017and for the first time three of the finalists are based here in the United States. First launched in 2013 to help stimulate the ideas necessary to build a better tomorrow, the Lexus International Design Award is celebrating its fifth anniversary. The competition supports up-and-coming designers and creators worldwide. Lexus Design Award 2017 drew 1,152 entries from 63 countries under the theme of “Yet.” As the philosophical soul of Lexus innovation, “Yet” is particularly appropriate for the fifth anniversary of this Lexus event.
This past November a panel of acclaimed designers and creative mentors gathered to judge the entries. The judges chose 12 finalists and of the 12 finalists, Jessica Fügler, Ahran Won, Hiroto Yoshizoe and Jia Wu were selected to prototype their designs, mentored by globally recognized creators.
To provide creative guidance to the four finalists, Lexus Design Award 2017 has enlisted the help of four renowned mentors: architects and interdisciplinary designers Neri & Hu, designer Max Lamb, designer/architect Elena Manferdini and artist/architect Snarkitecture. All of which served as mentors to last year’s finalists, as well.
The four completed prototypes will be featured as part of the Lexus exhibition at this year’s Milan Design Week, along with presentation boards introducing the other eight finalists’ designs. The event will run from April 3 through April 9. On April 3rd press and award presentation day, the finalists will present their designs to the judges and international media. The judges will evaluate the four prototypes and announce the Grand Prix winner, marking the climax of the Lexus Design Award 2017 award cycle. Lexus Design Award.
