Dezeen has announced the 123 projects longlisted for this year’s Dezeen Awards in the design categories, including designs by Snøhetta, Bocci, Samsung and Formafantasma.
The 123 longlisted projects, which are in the running for awards in nine different design project categories, are by studios located across 22 different countries including Malaysia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, Canada, Spain and Sweden.
The top three represented studio countries are the UK, with 34 longlisted entries, followed by the US with 16 and Norway with nine.
Amongst the longlisted designs this year is a bionic wearable designed to help with walking difficulties, a calculator that predicts how sea level rise will affect global cities and a portable kit to clean menstruation pads for refugees.
Other longlisted projects include a chunky stripped-back bathroom fitting and furniture collection, a touring festival to champion nightlife and youth counterculture and a geometric pendant design informed by modernist cathedral lighting.
All Dezeen Awards 2023 longlists revealed this week
Dezeen Awards 2023, in partnership with Bentley Motors, will reveal all longlisted projects this week. The architecture and interiors longlists were announced earlier this week, and the sustainability longlist will be revealed tomorrow.
Longlisted projects have been selected from over 4,800 entries from 94 countries for the sixth edition of our awards programme, which celebrates the world’s best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and individuals producing the most outstanding work.
The next stage of Dezeen Awards 2023 will see all longlisted projects assessed by our international jury of leading professionals, including designers Erwan Bouroullec, Sophie Sellu, Sabine Marcelis and Yuri Suzuki.
The judges will determine the projects that feature on the shortlists, which will be announced in October. A further round of judging by our master jury will determine the winners, which will be announced in November.
The nine winners of the design project categories will then battle to be crowned overall design project of the year.
