Dezeen Awards 2022 announces world's best designs across design categories
Dezeen has revealed the winners of this year's Dezeen Awards design categories, in this year's Dezeen Awards, which celebrates the best architecture, interiors and design around the globe. The 11 winning design studios awarded in Dezeen's annual awards programme are located across nine different countries including Japan, the Netherlands, Latvia, Australia and Canada. All category winners will now compete against each other to win the overall accolade for best building, best interior and best design, which will be revealed at a live awards event on 29 November in London. This year again, NPO Aoyama Design Forum (ADF) proudly supports the award as a media partner.
Three projects focused on accessibility won accolades this year, including a lightweight magnesium and carbon fibre wheelchair, a wearable vibrator to help with erectile dysfunction and a wooden armchair for people with age-related disabilities.
London-based studio Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and artist Leo Villareal collaborated to design the LED installation that spans nine bridges on London's River Thames, winning them architectural lighting design of the year.
Scottish artist and metalworker Kathleen Reilly designed a knife "Oku" that takes cues from traditional Japanese table settings while maintaining a recognisable knife form, which has won the Homeware design of the year.
Entries were initially scored by our jury of 25 leading design industry professionals before the winners were decided by a master jury that met at One Hundred Shoreditch in September made up of Arrival chief design officer Jeremy Offer, V&A contemporary programme curator Meneesha Kellay, Lara Bohinc of Bohinc Studio and London Craft Week head of programme and content Naomi Davenport.
The 11 project winners will now compete to win overall design project of the year, which will be announced at the Dezeen Awards 2022 party in London on 29 November.
