2019 nominees

Transport

In the world of transport, the present and the near future are battling it out. Flying cars and 3D-printed motorcycles represent real achievements of technical engineering, but, for many city dwellers today, road safety for cyclists is the most pressing issue in public and private transportation.

In London, a new design protocol for lorries is one of the most important design innovations of the year, and it goes hand-in-hand with another nominee: a pair of super-friendly smiley-faced bicycle gloves.
