It’s finally here, the big day of announcing our finalists for the 2015 INDEX: Award!

What a whirlwind! It’s been a lengthy and complex process, but our INDEX: Award Jury have finally made their decisions, and from what we saw – it was no easy task.

CLICK HERE to see our INDEX: Award finalists for 2015, a total of 46 chosen from a pool of 1,123 designs!

This year we have seven designs in BODY, nine designs in HOME, 11 designs in WORK, 10 designs in PLAY & LEARNING and nine designs in COMMUNITY. These were all chosen due to their strength and creativity, as well as their overall rank across the INDEX: Award criteria of Form, Impact, Context.

Some of the key challenges represented in the finalist pool were digitalisation, sustainable living, energy, health and education. We also saw a number of new and traditional trends such as biomimicry, crowdsourcing platforms, initiatives to democratise learning and teach new skills as well as some great solutions to address our biggest environmental challenges. To read more about our trends for this year, read our 2015 trend overview or check out our infographics.

Our biggest congratulations to all our finalists – you’re all more than deserving! All the solutions are a fantastic mix of truly innovative designs.

We’d also like to extend a huge thanks to everyone that was nominated or took the time to nominate. As we’ve mentioned, this year we were blown away with the quality of designs, and choosing finalists was a very difficult process. We’d love to see you all back in 2017!

Here’s to the next step!
