INDEX:Award Winners Announced

What do a Tongue Sucker, a Tesla Roadster, and a laptop that costs somewhere between $100 and $200 have in common besides being really great stocking stuffers? They’re all winners of this year’s INDEX:Awards, announced Friday in Copenhagen. The world’s best-known design-for-good competition also gives the best prize: 100,000 Euros (that’s $136,357.08 US, and we’re betting no one’s whining about the exchange rate today).

Jade Chang from Metropolis was on the ground and she’s got details about the award ceremony and a list of winners, with links and commentary. She also snapped a hilarious shot of a local Danish woman staring quizzically at a bubble holding one of the nominated designs in the middle of a Copenhagen square.
