Louis Vuitton's creative director Abloh, who showcased his inaugural menswear collection for the label during Paris fashion week last year, will judge design projects and products alongside experimental British-born artist Lucy McRae.

McRae's science fiction art explores how design could prepare humans to go to space,  including experiments with vacuum packing to prepare humans for future long-haul space travel.

Danilo Mandelli, director of the international project division of Delta Light, will also be judging entries for Dezeen Awards 2019. Delta Light collaborated with lighting designer Dean Skira on the Polesano street lamp.
