INDEX: Design to Improve Life is a Danish nonprofit organisation which works towards promoting designs aimed at the improvement of human lives worldwide, both in developed and developing countries. The organization is behind the biennial INDEX: Award, the world's biggest design award.

History[edit]

Established in 2002, INDEX: Design to Improve Life was initially proposed by designer Johan Adam Linneballe and then Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs Jørgen Rosted (da) as a world design event in order to promote Denmark on a global scale,[1][2][3] as well as attract tourism and investments.[4] However, it soon acquired a global perspective, and its mission has become expressed in its motto: "Design to Improve Life".[1][5]

The organisation is under the patronage of the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark, is supported by the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth. INDEX: Design to Improve Life is promoted by means of a design award, the INDEX: Award, a world-touring exhibition, a summer camp, conferences, and publications.[6] It has since 20 May 2008 been operated by Danish Design Centre,[7] and is headed by Kigge Hvid, former CEO of Øksnehallen.[8][9][10][11][12]

INDEX: Award[edit]

The biennial INDEX: Award was initiated in 2005, financed by the state of Denmark with a total prize sum of 500,000.[13][14] It is currently the world's largest monetary award in its area,[15][16][17] is widely recognized as the most influential in inspiring life-improving design,[18][19][20] and has often been dubbed the "Nobel Prize of design".[21][22][23][24] British design critic Alice Rawsthorn in 2011, wrote for The New York Times, "Not only is INDEX: the world's most generous design prize in financial terms, it is one of the few awards to have made a meaningful contribution to design discourse."[25]

Projects from around the world are entered into competition for the award with finalists and winners determined by an international jury. In addition to choosing the successful designs, the INDEX: Award Jury plays a key role in the organization, discussing, evaluating and advocating for strategies to expand the borders and impact of design in the world. The INDEX: Award Presentation has become a major event, with an exhibition of the finalists sited in public squares of hosting cities.[5]
