The Mercedes-Benz Design Award provides a unique opportunity for designers to realise their ideas. Now in its fourth year, the award is looking for innovative designs for the living space; ideas that have a strong sustainability element built into the object.

In this video, Broadsheet’s editorial director Katya Wachtel explains sustainable design means more than utilising environmentally friendly materials – it needs to be a holistic approach.

The winner of the Mercedes-Benz Design Award will receive:

o Their design prototyped, manufactured and sold by Cult Design.
o Mentorship from Australia's design leaders.
o A Mercedes-Benz to drive for 2019.

Entries are now open.
