The Index Project

The Index Project is a Danish nonprofit organisation that strives towards the mission to redefine design from a commercially driven disciple to one that’s used to improve quality of life for everyone.. The Index Award, the world’s greatest design prize, awards ground-breaking design from around the world. The 2019 finalists included MasSpec, the pen used for early detection of cancerous cells in tissue; Thumy, temporary tattoos to encourage children with type I diabetes to take their injections; and Skin Display, a digitalised “second skin” for elderly people. Using a transparent glove as a sensor, important health data is collected, while the sensor also gives reminders.
