Vote for the People's Design Award

Cooper Hewitt People's Design Award logo

There's only a few days left to vote for the People's Design Award. The award is organized by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. For years they've run the prestigious National Design Awards, this year they've expanded things with the People's award, allowing we mere design mortals to speak.

It's a blast to browse through the nominees. People have already nominated more than 350 design artifacts...everything from the iPod to Veronica Lake's hairstyle (my personal favorite -- Curt Herzstark's astonishing Curta mechanical calculator). You can vote for any of them, or make your own nomination.

But hurry! Voting closes at 6 PM (EST) next Monday, with the winner announced next Wednesday.
