The next world-changing Filipino innovator could be you
Reaching a worldwide audience with a groundbreaking idea can still be a challenge, though, which is why participating in the Lexus Design Award could be a path toward making your world-changing dream into a reality. What is the Lexus Design Award? It is an international design competition targeting the next generation of innovators around the world. The Lexus Design Award aims to provide an opportunity for innovators to work with a world-famous designer as mentor to create prototypes of their designs. Through this initiative, Lexus hopes to contribute to nurturing and supporting creators. This prestigious international design competition, launched in 2013 and now in its 10th year, continues to evolve as a platform for design innovation that leads to a better tomorrow. Entrants need to demonstrate how their creative ideas express three key principles of the Lexus brand: Anticipate, Innovate and Captivate. Their design should anticipate global challenges facing future society and imagine engaging and innovative ways to contribute to a sustainable and happy future for all. Lexus is looking for captivating designs that intersect with thoughtful solutions and can truly make a brighter future for people and societies in diverse circumstances. Notable past winners of the Lexus Design award are “Ooho!”—an edible capsule-shaped packaging made from seaweed as an alternative to the plastic bottle; “Algorithmic Lace,” a 3D printing technology that works in conjunction with handmade elements to create, among other groundbreaking things, a bra for breast cancer survivors; and “Portable Solar Distiller,” which makes clean drinking water from polluted water or sea water, using sunlight.
