Dezeen Awards 2019 design shortlist revealed

The Dezeen Awards 2019 design shortlist has been revealed. It includes a self-cleaning water bottle, a pendant light made with used coffee grounds, and the world's first silent wireless breast pump.

Plant-based shoes made from pineapples, a bakery powered by people's workouts, and a pop-up bistro that created zero food waste are also among the 52 products and projects on the Dezeen Awards 2019 design shortlist.

The ten categories span furniture, lighting, homeware, product and wearable design. Categories for sustainable design, installation design and graphic design were introduced for the first time this year.
