The stab-proof vest Banksy designed for Stormzy to wear during his Pyramid Stage headline slot at Glastonbury last year has been nominated for the Beazley Designs of the Year prize.

Stormzy wore the black Union Jack vest, which was made with former police issue armory, to draw attention to inequality and structural racism

The organisers of the new exhibition it will be featured in at London’s Design Museum called the vest “a defining cultural moment”.

There are 74 nominations for the design award across six categories: architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, product and transport.

Other nominations include the house from the Oscar-winning South Korean film Parasite, the sound design from award-winning TV show Chernobyl, a self-sanitising door handle, and a dance created by a 14-year-old Tik Tok user Jalaiah Harmon.

The exhibition is open now and runs until March 28, 2021. The winners will be announced on November 26.
