London’s Design Museum has announced the nominees in its eighth annual Designs of the Year competition. Covering six categories—architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, products, and transport—the competition recognizes design that promotes or delivers change, enables access, extends design practice, or captures the spirit of the year. The museum, owned by London-based architect Zaha Hadid, Hon. FAIA, will host an exhibition featuring these entries from March 25 through August 23. Here are some of our top picks from the 76 nominees.
