T3 Awards 2016: who's nominated for Design of the Year?

Here they come, the beautiful ones, la-la, la-la

The winner here will be the most pleasing looking device, or one that reimagines what a thing of its type can look like, or do. The product needs to actually work, too. That always helps.

Check out everything there is to know about tonight's T3 Awards 2016 powered by EE

B&W Zeppelin Wireless

Oh the humanity! This stunningly powerful Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker is airship-shaped and Bristol fashion, and very black indeed.

British Gas Hive 2

What a difference a little Yves Béhar magic design dust can make. The new Hive banished memories of its ugly-stick-assailed predecessor.

Olympus Pen-F

Crash, bang, wallop. What a picture. Our advice with the retro-cool Pen F is this: buy two, then take photos of it, with it.

Dyson Supersonic

Yes, a hairdryer can be sexy. And economical. And involve magnets.Thank you, Dyson, for opening our eyes (and drying our hair).

Aston Martin DB11

“No mister Bond, I expect you to give me your car keys, so I can drive off in it and hopefully encounter Pussy Galore on the road.”

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Yes, it does look very much like the last Galaxy Edge. No, we have absolutely no problem with that. It also makes phone calls: read our full Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge review

Duncan Bell
Duncan Bell

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years and fitness ever since he became middle aged and realised he could no longer rely solely on his boyish good looks. He used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
