Today, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum announced the 23rd class of National Design Award winners, honored for design innovation and impact. The 2022 Design Visionary award has been given to Nader Tehrani for his “profound contribution to advancing the field”.

“This year’s National Design Award winners reflect the central role that design can play in addressing some of the most urgent needs of our time. Attuned to increasing social and planetary challenges, all awardees, regardless of their category, have a regenerative approach to design work that takes into account our shared future. I’m grateful to our thoughtful jury this year for their selection. Their deliberations revealed that behind each winner is a philosophy of work that expertly weaves together technological innovation while elevating traditional craft, or that prioritizes preservation and reparation processes, ultimately designing for citizens, and not consumers—a reason for hope in today’s complex world if there ever was one.”

– Maria Nicanor, director of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
