THE DESIGN MUSEUM BEAZLEY DESIGNS OF THE YEAR

A Plastic-Free Supermarket Aisle.
Designed by A Plastic Planet and Made Thought
for Ekoplaza.

Dutch supermarket chain Ekoplaza has opened the world’s first plastic-free shopping aisle, with a plan to expand the programme to all of its 74 stores by the end of 2018. The aisle features more than 700 products packaged in recyclable glass, metal, cardboard and biodegradable containers, all clearly signposted by the ‘plastic-free’ logo designed by Made Thought. The logo is clear and simple, providing a cue for shoppers to buy responsibly.

Now in its eleventh year, Beazley Designs of the Year is the Design Museum’s annual celebration of the most original and exciting products, concepts and designers in the world today. The international awards and exhibition showcase design projects from the previous 12 months, across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Product, Graphics, and Transport. Design experts, practitioners and academics from across the world are asked by the Design Museum to suggest potential projects, from which the museum has selected 87 for nomination to display in the exhibition. A specially selected jury will choose a winner for each category and an overall winner – to be announced in November 2018.
