Next Generation: One Design Fix For The Future

Metropolis magazine has announced the focus for its annual Next Generation Design Competition: ONE DESIGN FIX FOR THE FUTURE. The winner receives a $10,000 prize. Next Generation 2010 is sponsored by Herman Miller and entries are due January 29, 2010.

ONE DESIGN FIX FOR THE FUTURE, the Next Generation Design Competition, challenges designers of all kinds — architects, interior designers, product designers, landscape designers, graphic designers and communication designers. The magazine is looking for entries that propose ONE DESIGN FIX to our designed environment, fixes that can be applied to the way that the designer himself or herself may actually live today: the products we use at home or work, our home or workplace, our city or any commercial application. A design fix that may be quite humble or affect only a small thing, but which in scale, deployed throughout our society, can improve our future by making it more sustainable, energy-efficient, less damaging to the environment.

Twist is Herman Miller’s new, energy-efficient, eco-friendly undershelf LED light for systems furniture, providing value, simplicity, and personal control for office workers. Twist demonstrates Herman Miller’s leadership in innovation, performance, and sustainability by using fewer raw materials and providing a lighting solution that’s efficient to operate and maintain.
