Lexus has recently announced the four winning entries of its 11th Lexus Design Award 2023, The international design competition aimed at discovering, refining the capabilities and providing exposure to up-and-coming creators and designers.

How the winning entries were shortlisted?

This 11th Lexus Design Award continue with the tradition of addressing issues and trends under the theme of “Design for a Better Tomorrow”. Winners were selected from among the 2,068 entries submitted from 63 countries, by a three-judge panel featuring Paola Antonelli, Karim Rashid, and Simon Humphries, all of whom have achieved success in creative disciplines worldwide.
The four Lexus Design Award 2023 winning proposals were chosen based on the participants who integrated their creative ideas with the Lexus brand's three core principles: "Anticipate," "Innovate," and "Captivate." The four winning proposals aim at resolving social issues to help prepare for the decades ahead building a sustainable future and achieving happiness for all.

Mentoring Program at the Lexus Design Award 2023

During the three-month mentoring program kicked off in mid-January with the first workshop, winners collaborated with all four world-class creators: Marjan van Aubel, Joe Doucet, Yuri Suzuki, and Sumayya Vally. This process refines the winners’ ideas while developing prototypes that embody their proposals.
First-time mentor Marjan van Aubel said, “We live in challenging times where the design we create for the future needs to be considered in terms of whether it will work in the years ahead. That is, will it be suitable, practical, and possible? I hope to give them a future-proof perspective. For emerging creative talents this offers a springboard for their careers. I am excited to be part of this!”
This Spring, Lexus will present how the four winning entries of Lexus design award have developed and matured as a result of their interactions with the mentors.
Additionally, Lexus is planning to open up public voting for the People's Choice Award in order to spread awareness of the Lexus Design Award 2023 to people around the world. Anyone will be able to select their favourite design among the four winners as best representing Design for a Better Tomorrow. Full details will be announced at a later date.

A word from the Lexus Officials
