With a different configuration from common design awards, the Prêmio de Design Instituto Tomie Ohtake Leroy Merlin (Instituto Tomie Ohtake Leroy Merlin Design Award) was created as a innovative project: abandoning categories, the award proposed a challenging theme for each new edition. From this theme, university students and newly-graduated people from any area can apply. The idea is to acknowledge applications that emphasize and conceive the relationship between design and other fields, such as architecture, biology, engineering, fashion, technology and social sciences. With these principles, the Award aims at showing that the most striking design projects today establish dialogues with other fields, urging new innovative solutions that can answer contemporary questions, debating our current social, political, urban, and housing situations, as well as new technological demands, new equipment, new publications and digital medias.
