The Designs of the Year awards, known as "The Oscars of the design world" showcase the most innovative and imaginative designs from around the world, over the past year.
The shortlisted designs span seven categories:
This year's winner was the government website gov.uk.
Among the other shortlisted designs were the celebrated Olympic Cauldron by Heatherwick Studio; Western Europe's tallest building – The Shard – designed by Renzo Piano; the boutique boat-shaped hotel room A Room for London by David Kohn Architects; The Louis Vuitton collection by Yayoi Kusama; and the award-winning Exhibition Road by Dixon Jones, which integrates vehicle and foot traffic with its rejection of boundaries between pavement and road.
The successful Barbican installation Rain Room by Random International also received a nomination. Look out too for a non-stick ketchup bottle invented by the Varanasi Research Group at MIT; a pair of self-adjustable glasses for children with no access to opticians by The Centre for Vision in the Developing World in Oxford; and a wheelchair that folds flat by Vitamins Design.
