This year's competition revealed some incredible products, and we've listed a few of our faves below. If you think you've got the nous to enter next year's contest, then get involved over at the A' Design website.
Here's some inspo from the last group of entries, kicking off with the Homeware category (with a little bit of Cookware thrown in). We'll be listing our faves from a selection of other categories soon:
We're big fans of the Anti-Loneliness Ramen Bowl. With a little slot for your iPhone, the bowl lets you Facetime while you slurp Ramen, meaning your meals for one can now be shared by two. Obviously, you'll be able to use your smart phone's other functions too, but we won't go into that.
The Bicycling Bar Chair is another front-runner. Exercise while you booze: Peace of mind for calorie counting drinkrs I'm sure.
Everyone needs a new place to stick their knives right? Well, how about this sleekly designed bull. Sure to be popular on the Continent.
Want to really tie the room together and make people think they're about to fall into a hole? Then you need the Folded Tones Rug.
I really like it when you've spent hours walking around a gallery and you finally get a chance to sit down. The Metric-Ganic Bench looks destined to comfort the weary-art lover for decades to come. Plus it's a brilliant design.
