Lutz to get new award at NAIAS from Eyes on Design
The new Design Catalyst Award will go annually to an individual who recognizes the great among the many good designers, and serves to enable their continued success. The inaugural award will be presented by Wayne Cherry to Lutz, of whom it has been said "he is responsible for more vehicle styling on the world's roads while at BMW, GM, Ford and Chrysler than any man alive".
Cherry himself will receive the EyesOn Design 2013 Lifetime Design Achievement Award next June as part of the EyesOn Design summer week of activities.
Now in their eighth year, the Eyes On Design Awards honor the best production and concept cars making their North American or worldwide debut at the Detroit North American International Auto Show. The EyesOn Design Awards are selected by a panel of 25 active and retired design heads of automotive OEMs, transportation design chairs from top art schools, and an occasional designer from another field.
he Award Categories are: The Best Designed Concept Vehicle Award and the Best Designed Production Vehicle Award. By Joseph Szczesny
