Recognising the contribution made by leading design figures and emerging talents to London and the industry
Each year, London Design Festival recognises the contribution made by leading design figures and emerging talents to London and the industry, with four London Design Medals awarded: The London Design Medal, Lifetime Achievement Medal, Emerging Design Medal, and Design Innovation Medal. A panel of established designers, industry commentators and previous winners meet to debate the possible recipients of the Medals.
The 2020 Winners are:
·London Design Medal: Paola Antonelli
·Design Innovation Medal: Dame Ellen MacArthur
·Emerging Design Medal: Yinka Ilori
·Lifetime Achievement Medal: Ken Garland
This year, the awards ceremony will take place virtually, on the evening of 14 September, supported by SAP. We are delighted to partner once again with Fortnum & Mason who will be creating specially designed hampers for guests in collaboration with Pentagram and Spirit Partner No.3 Gin. The ceremony will be available to watch across the London Design Festival’s channels from 18:30 GMT.
