The Design Museum’s annual exhibition and awards celebrating the world’s best designs returns for its ninth instalment. Nominees include the last David Bowie album cover, Tate Modern’s new Switch House extension and Ikea’s flatpack refugee shelter. The exhibition will form part of the opening programme at the Design Museum’s spectacular new home in Kensington.

A winner will be selected in each category and one overall winner will be announced on 26th January 2017. Previous winners have included the 2012 Olympic Torch, the Heydar Aliyev Centre by Zaha Hadid and last year the accolade was awarded to Human Organs-on-Chips, a micro device lined with living human cells to mimic the complex tissues structures of the human body.
