Nominations announced for Brit Insurance Designs of the Year
Wednesday 11 February 2009
The Brit Insurance Designs of the Year exhibition, which runs from 12 February - 14 June has announced this year's nominations.
The designs have been nominated by industry experts spanning seven categories: Architecture, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Interactive, Product and Transport, to be judged by a panel chaired by Alan Yentob and including the designer and environmentalist Karen Blincoe, and the architect Peter Cook.
The shortlist will be on show at the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year Exhibition.
Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum said, "Design touches every aspect of our daily lives. This exciting shortlist reflects its impact on politics as well as fashion. It highlights great architecture, and smart technology. In the midst of economic chaos, creative thinking is more important than ever. Alan Yentob makes an excellent chair for an international jury that is going to have its work cut out choosing winners."
Brit Insurance Designs of the Year exhibition rungs from 12 Feb - 14 June 09 and the awards ceremony takes place on 18 March at the Design Museum, designmuseum.org
