Upon receiving the award, Henry Glogau, said: "It’s a great honour to be selected as this year’s Grand Prix winner, and I’d like to say thank you to the judges.
“When you look at the level and quality of the finalists and their projects and the progress that has been made throughout, any one of us could have been the winner this year.
“ And, a massive thank you to Lexus. Being part of a prestigious award like this with a company that is truly passionate about Design for a Better Tomorrow, and which gives up-and-coming designers a platform and solid foundation to build their design futures on is incredible.”
Grand Prix Winner Announcement
After the selection of the Grand Prix winner, Judge Greg Lynn commented on the surprisingly functional elements of Henry’s concept.
“Henry was one of the designers who surprised me the most from the application to the final submission,” says Lynn. “The design became more refined, more functional, and more open source during the process.
“The ability to produce working prototypes was important to all the participants but to Henry it pointed towards the manifold potential of the system that became much more than just a product or appliance but instead a portable, deployable infrastructure.”
