LELO UnDesign Award Finalists Announced

SAN JOSE, Calif. ­– After six weeks and several hundred submissions from all over the world, 12 finalists from 12 countries have been shortlisted and their designs are now open to public vote in the LELO UnDesign Awards.

LELO challenged designers with a theme based on intimacy, and how it can be created through the deconstruction of conventional design motifs.

The 12 finalists come from destinations all over the world, including: Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Czech Republic, U.S., Slovakia, Switzerland, South Africa, Iran, Columbia and Egypt.

According to LELO, since the UnDesign Awards are all about interconnectedness, anyone can become a judge and cast their vote for the winning design, alongside a panel of international design experts working with LELO.

The annual UnDesign Awards, now in its second year, was launched by Swedish-based design brand LELO. The ambition is to energize and inspire people to look again at the way design and technology has the potential to erode our concept of human connectedness. This year saw more than double the amount of entrants as last year’s design award, the company said. Up for grabs for the winner, as chosen by the public in collaboration with the expert panel, is $3000 and a cache of LELO pleasure products.
