Written by CNN Staff
A decade ago, London's Design Museum launched its popular Designs of the Year award, an annual program and exhibition celebrating the most significant designs in six categories: architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, product and transport.
The anniversary is celebrated by a new book, "Designs of our Time: 10 Years of Designs of the Year." It collects a total of 840 designs from across the world, selected by 205 nominators.
