The first in an annual exploration of the most innovative, interesting and forward looking new work in design of all kinds. Selected from around the world, Brit Insurance Designs of the Year presents 100 projects nominated by a group of internationally respected design experts, curators, critics, practitioners and enthusiasts. These projects fall within seven categories: architecture, fashion, furniture, graphics, interactive, product and transport. The exhibition gives an overview of the most significant achievements in design and architecture in the last year, whether they are projects by a
practice, a team or an individual.
An international jury, each with expertise in their respective fields, will select a winner for the Brit Insurance Design Awards, recognising the best of contemporary design from around the world in each category as well as an overall winner. These winners will be announced and presented in March 2008.
