LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2023 WINNER FOG-X ALSO RECEIVES "YOUR CHOICE AWARD"
- Pavel Hedström’s design for a multi-function jacket that can collect fog to make drinking water wins the first Lexus "Your Choice Award"
- In-person and online visitors to Lexus’ Milan Design Week presentation voted for their favourite among this year’s four Lexus Design Award-winning prototypes
A multi-function jacket that could provide valuable help to travellers in remote and arid locations has won the first Lexus Your Choice Award. The ingenious concept by Denmark-based Swedish designer Pavel Hedström was one of four winners in the Lexus Design Award 2023. It subsequently collected the most votes cast by members of the public who visited Lexus’ presentation of the winning prototypes at Milan Design Week in April. Both those who viewed the exhibition in person and those who visited online were eligible to nominate their favourite.
Fog-X captured the award’s defining principles of design that can help secure a better future. It is a jacket that converts into a one-person shelter and has a section that can be raised to catch fog and turn it into drinking water. During the award’s mentorship phase, Hedström was able to expand the concept to include a mobile app to help users locate areas of fog.
