All the contenders for the annual design award are on display at an exhibition until 6 January – and the winners will be announced on 15 November.
According to the Design Museum, hundreds of design experts from around the world nominate the most innovative and thought-provoking designs from the past 12 months for the awards.
They fall into six categories: fashion, architecture, digital, transport, product and graphic design.
