Design of the Year 2012

Between now and July 15 the shortlisted entries for the 2012 Designs of the Year Awards are on display at the Design Museum in London.

Described as the Oscars of the design world, the Awards showcase the world’s most innovative and progressive designs in seven categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Product and Transport.

This year the entries include the Olympic Torch, a wind-propelled landmine detonator, origami dresses and an earthquake proof table. Some amazing and inspirational work on display but if you’re not going to get a chance to go to London then check out the Design Museum’s curator, Ria Hawthorn, giving a tour of some of the highlights for the BBC. Also, check out the official Design of the Year blog.
