TOKYO: Following the cancellation of this year's Milan Design Week, Lexus has also axed its 2020 Lexus Design Event.

Lexus said it would continue to explore opportunities to work with the creative community despite the setback caused by the Covid-19 pandemic..

The 2020 Lexus Design Award Grand Prix winner announcement, which had been scheduled for the same time, will be held separately at a date to be announced once details are confirmed, said Lexus.

First launched in 2013, the Lexus Design Award is an international design competition that targets up-and-coming creators from around the world.

The award seeks to foster the growth of ideas that contribute to society by supporting designers and creators whose works can help to shape a better future. It provides a unique opportunity for each finalist to work with a globally recognized designer as a mentor to create prototypes of their designs, and then exhibit them at one of the design calendar's most important events.
