Lexus design award 2023 winning entries unveiled

01 Mar 2023

Lexus has recently announced the four winning entries of its 11th LEXUS DESIGN AWARD, the international design competition aimed at discovering and refining the capabilities of up-and-coming creators. The winners were selected from among 2,068 entries representing 63 countries by a three-judge panel featuring Paola Antonelli, Karim Rashid, and Simon Humphries, all of whom have achieved success in creative disciplines worldwide. 

The entries came under the slogan of Design for a Better Tomorrow

The entries came under the slogan of Design for a Better Tomorrow

This year’s winning award entries continue with the tradition of addressing issues and trends of the times under the theme of Design for a Better Tomorrow. The four winning proposals aim at resolving social issues to help prepare for the decades ahead by creating a sustainable future and achieving happiness for all, and were selected based on the participants’ innovative projects that integrated their creative ideas with the Lexus brand's three core principles of Anticipate, Innovate, and Captivate.

Commenting on the outcome of this year’s award, judge Paola Antonelli said: Having served as a judge since the first LEXUS DESIGN AWARD, I appreciate the generosity, talent, and energy of hundreds of young designers from around the world, and continue to note the design field’s evolution, as these designers take an increasingly visionary, yet realistic view that encompasses not only humanity, but also all the rest of nature.

Congratulating the four winners, Kei Fujita, Chief Representative of Middle East & Central Asia Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation, said: “We are excited to see that the Lexus Design Award, now in its eleventh year, is increasingly recognized amongst creatives from around the world. This year’s submissions have been exceptional in terms of ideas, with the four winners demonstrating unparalleled creativity, resourcefulness, and a great capacity for forward-thinking.”

Fujita added, Breaking conventions and going beyond the boundaries of imagination are at the heart of Lexus’ approach to design, and the Lexus Design Award offers us all an opportunity to continue creating amazing experiences. I graciously thank all those who made the award’s 2023 edition such a success, as well as each of our customers whose support has never failed to inspire us on our journey through the years.

The three-month mentoring program kicked off in mid-January with the first workshop. During the mentoring program, winners collaborate with all four world-class creators: Marjan van Aubel, Joe Doucet, Yuri Suzuki, and Sumayya Vally. This process refines the winners’ ideas while developing prototypes that embody their proposals. First-time mentor Marjan van Aubel said We live in challenging times where the design we create for the future needs to be considered in terms of whether it will work in the years ahead. That is, will it be suitable, practical, and possible? I hope to give them a future-proof perspective. For emerging creative talents this offers a springboard for their careers. I am excited to be part of this!

This Spring, Lexus will present how the winners’ prototypes have developed and blossomed through interaction with the mentors. Also, in order to bring knowledge of the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2023 to even more people around the world, Lexus is planning to invite public participation with the People’s Choice Award. This will allow anyone to choose their preference from among the four winners as best representing Design for a Better Tomorrow. Full details will be announced at a later date.

GMC has announced that the much anticipated GMC Canyon midsize truck in the AT4X trim, has joined its Middle East premium line-up for the first time adding more diversity to it than ever before. Smaller and more compact than the beloved Sierra, but undeniably a GMC, the Canyon AT4X is built from the ground up to conquer any terrain.

The GMC Canyon is the most advanced, off-road midsize truck in the GMC lineup and the first midsize truck on the market to offer a suite of segment-first key features including: Baja Mode, for high-speed off-road driving, enhanced Front and Rear Electronic Locking Differentials Multimatic DSSV shocks.

Jack Uppal, President and General Manager, General Motors Africa and Middle East: “The arrival of the first-ever GMC Canyon to the region marks a return to the midsize pick-up truck segment in the Middle East. Our engineers and designers did not take any short cuts. The all-new Canyon AT4X is the most advanced off road midsize truck – and it signals our commitment to the continued growth of GMC in the region, with laser-focus on our core GMC customer base and to continue to deliver off-road capable vehicles. Canyon AT4X brings offroad performance elements we first introduced on our flagship Sierra AT4X into a more compact package, catering to a wider audience. The Canyon stands as the “official vehicle of nowhere” and we can’t wait to see it everywhere.”
