Designs of the Year 2015

Design Museum | 25 March – 23 August 2015

Admission: Standard entry £13

Among the 76 nominated projects for 2015 are an off-grid eco toilet, microchips that mimic human organs, a campaign promoting ugly vegetables and a book printed without ink.

A strong theme for this year is the desire to harness new technologies to solve long-standing problems; from the world’s first lab for 3D printing prosthetic limbs, to a sensor which connects to a cow’s tail and texts the farmer when calving is imminent. The jury includes sculptural artist and designer of the Olympic tower, Anish Kapoor, and eminent architect and Harvard professor, Farshid Moussavi.
