Design for a Better Tomorrow

Lexus believes that great design can help build a better tomorrow. Since 2013, the Lexus Design Award has brought that belief to life, while supporting and nurturing the next generation of designers from around the world.

For 2022, the design challenge called for innovative ideas and transformative solutions that leverage technology - and in turn, contribute to society and help to shape a brighter future. Six finalists were selected from over 2,000 submissions from 66 countries, and invited to bring their ideas to life.

Each prototype is developed under the mentorship of our internationally recognized team of global designers.

She was raised in a very close relationship with her grandmother. After her grandmother developed dementia, she wondered how she could continue communicating. That's how Rewind was born. Designed to evoke memories, Rewind uses a motion-tracking tool that guides seniors with dementia in re-enacting familiar gestures. These actions are then reflected as audio-visual feedback on a paired device that triggers recollection.


Five other finalists were selected for their original and inventive solutions featuring a diverse range of innovative craftsmanship techniques, materials and applications. This year’s winner received the 2022 Grand Prix Trophy designed by Hideki Yoshimoto, the winner in the first Lexus Design Award in 2013 who has since become a successful London-based designer.
