As for the 2014 winner, it’s up to you, and by “you,” we mean anyone who votes—early and often (OK, daily)—here.

From today through October 6, you can browse and vote for your favorite of a field of 20 nominated designs including elegant and inventive consumer products (Drift Light, Lumio, Soma Water Bottle), medical devices (Cue, Spire, Stick-On Circuit Board), eco-friendly construction materials (Mushroom Building Blocks), emergency tools (SAM Junctional Tourniquet) and design solutions for human and environmental problems (Deka Arm, Ecozoom Stove). The winner will be announced on October 9 at the National Design Awards Gala in New York City and on the Smithsonian’s voting site.
