INDEX: AWARD EXHIBITION
Today, a widening field of designers and manufacturers is turning inspiration, skills and industrial capabilities to issues of improving life – both in the developed world and in still-emerging societies. INDEX: Award 2011 Exhibition thus features the 60 finalists for INDEX: Award 2011 - the world's biggest, life-improving design award.
INDEX: Award Exhibition has over the years become synonymous with hundreds of 6-foot, see-through, acrylic spheres scattered around Kongens Nytorv Square in downtown Copenhagen. However, in 2011, we came up with a brand new exhibition design in collaboration with American architect Greg Lynn and Danish architect Christian Ditlev Bruun, and Kongens Nytorv Square was replaced by Copenhagen's new hip hang-out, Ophelia Beach (Kvæsthusmolen) next to Copenhagen's beautiful new Royal Playhouse.
The new exhibition design is far from the minimalistic traditions of Scandinavia and features several 12-foot black, organic shapes with square, golden insets containing the displayed designs. The shapes are powered by LED-lights to light up the designs at night.
INDEX: Award Exhibition features the 60 finalists for INDEX: Award 2011, representing about 6 percent of the total number (966) of nominations for the world’s biggest design award. After showcasing the finalists in Copenhagen from September 2nd to November 20th 2011, the exhibition commenced its world tour, currently planned for six major cities in Asia and Europe (with more to be decided) and expected to run until 2013.
