Chipperfield aims to follow Stirling success with designers' prize
Stirling Prize winner David Chipperfield has been shortlisted for the Design Council’s prestigious Prince Philip Designers Prize 2007.
Ron Arad is also among the six nominees vying for the prize, which recognises ‘an outstanding lifetime contribution to design for business and society’.
The other four shortlisted contenders are: fashion designer Shelley Fox, artist and graphic designer David Gentleman, Apple industrial designer Jonathan Ive, and ceramics expert and designer Robin Levien.
The winner of the prize – which last year went to Thomas Heatherwick – will be announced by the Duke of Edinburgh at a ceremony on 25 October to coincide with the Design Council’s Designs of the time 07 (Dott 07) Festival.
Previous winners also include: Norman Foster (2004); Habitat founder Terence Conran (2003); Kenneth Grange, founder of design consultancy Pentagram (2000); and inventor James Dyson (1997).
