Beazley Designs of the Year
A design awards organisation that annually highlights the best designs in the world. This week, the nominations for the "Beazley Designs of the Year" were announced. We secretly knew before then, and so were present at the opening at the London Design Museum (jawadde-dadde).

First time at London Design Museum On Tuesday, I took the Eurostar towards London St. Pancras. After an Underground, a bus and some walking, I arrived at the London Design Museum. Waaw! What a beautiful museum, completely updated with the most current themes: sustainability, the abundance of plastic waste, inclusion, and so much more.

The entrance was huge with stairs and floors in a large cube-shaped space with at least one eye-catcher on each wall. We were welcomed by the organisers, Beazley and this year's curator, Beatrice Galilee, who officially opened the exhibition with all the nominated products and designs.

We saw a lot of interesting things, such as sustainable materials, kind of earth pellets to purify water, very impressive: a compostable pregnancy sprinkler, a wearable breast pump by Elvie, and much more. What a huge honour that our MySleeve can be part of this! https://vimeo.com/359503436 https://vimeo.com/359503570
