LEXUS CROWNS ITS FIRST-EVER AFRICAN WINNER FOR ITS PRESTIGIOUS ANNUAL DESIGN AWARD. Kenyan design studio BellTower has been named Grand-Prix winner of the 2020 Lexus Design Award for its innovative clean-water collection and storage unit. It marks the first time a design team from Africa has won the award in its eight year history. BellTower’s design, called Open Source Communities, addresses a common challenge in developing countries—devising a structure that can collect and store clean drinking water. Open Source Communities tackles and solves that challenge.
