LEXUS in collaboration with designboom present the Lexus Design Award 2020, international Design Competition that targets up-and-coming creators from around the world. Lexus invites today’s emerging design leaders to ‘Design for a Better Tomorrow’ for an extraordinary chance to achieve recognition on the world stage.
Since 2013, this international competition provides a unique opportunity for six finalists to work with globally recognized designers as mentors to create prototypes of their designs, and then exhibit them at one of the design calendar's most important events. There are four categories:
• Product Design

• Amticipate - Does the concept and design anticipate not only the needs of the user experience, but the needs of society?
• Innovate - Does the design demonstrate the new thinking and originality in its proposal and execution?
• Captivate - Is the design intriguing and compelling when realized in concept and execution?
