Through this program, and since its inception in 2013, Lexus puts into practice its commitment to support and nurture the next generation of designers who share Lexus’ belief in the power of design and innovation to shape a brighter future. The prototypes from all of this year’s finalists make creative use of technology to design practical solutions that have the power to change lives. The prototypes born from the creativity of the six finalists are on display at the Spazio Lexus at the Fuorisalone in Milan until 13 April.
