The Index Project
København, Denmark


The Index Award biennale celebrates people, from far and wide, who are using design to solve the problems that matter. Plastic pollution, gender inequality, food supply — you name it. Since 2005, we’ve recognised some of the world’s most impactful and iconic solutions. From tiny tools to diagnose disease to environmental moonshots saving our most vulnerable ecosystems. Notable past winners include: LifeStrawTM (2005), Tesla Roadster (2007), Kiva (2009), Hövding (2011), Raspberry Pi (2013), The Ocean CleanUp Array (2015) and Zipline (2017).

The Index Award isn’t just about upholding great designs but also about celebrating diversity, inspiring hope and, acting as a catalyst for groundbreaking innovation. It takes all types to design a future that works for everyone. We’re always on the look-out for the next game-changers, whoever you might be.

“Index has emerged at the forefront of one of the most important developments in contemporary design: the reinvention of design practice from a predominantly commercially driven discipline into one that also pursues social, political and ecological objectives.” - The New York Times
