Product Design of the Year
Foster + Partners – “LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R”
Foster + Partners has partnered with LG, using their
cutting-edge roll-able OLED screen technology, to redefine
the idea of the television and the living spaces it occupies. The new technology allows flexible spatial planning while preserving the purity of living spaces.

The new technology dematerialises the television screen, which can be automatically rolled in and out of a discreet minimalist rectangular enclosure when needed. The flexible screen allows freedom from walls and offers a sense of liberation to design interior spaces. It features a sculptural minimalist rectangular volume crafted from aluminium, which contains the rolling mechanism and integrated speaker, fronted by matching tonal fabric. The 0.2-millimetre-thick screen rises from the top of this box, supported by a sprung steel backing.

Design Team: Mike Holland, James White, Pietro Gottardi

Emerging Product Design of the year
Wojciech Morsztyn – “Ocean Community”
In the next 10 to 15 years rising sea levels could bring
irreplaceable changes to our environment. Ocean
community is a future mobility vision to deal with rising sea levels. By creating mobile domestic naval units, we
transform a disaster zone into a habitable space, using the ocean as living space. The creation of these new structures will serve as a fully functional living space and be connected with existing infrastructure on land. New ocean communities reside in the ocean, becoming a natural extension of coastal cities.
