INDEX Awards

INDEX – which stands of International Design Exhibition – just announced their category winners. You can check them out here. The theme was the ever-popularizing “sustainable design;” products that not only look great, but improve our quality of life. Below are pictures, not necessarily of winners, but of my personal favorites from the top nominees. I question whether some of thise will perform as intended, but they certainly look nice.
