We’re liking the look of the new the Genesis GV80 Concept SUV, not to mention the G80 Sport sedan.

Genesis joins other transportation, electronic, consumer and lifestyle product brands in receiving the annual awards from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.

The award, the oldest of its kind, was founded in 1950 by legendary designers, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and by architecture historian and philanthropist, Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

This year’s jury met in San Francisco and New York, selecting award-worthy products from 46 countries.

“The cars are a stunning achievement of high style, form, function and aesthetic,” states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, GOOD DESIGN.

The GV80 Concept is the brand’s first interpretation of a versatile luxury SUV, which strikes a perfect balance between elegance and versatility.

This is seen in the concept’s confident posture and athletic prowess.

A spacious interior indulges passengers and immerses them in technology that connects them to the vehicle.

Recognising the brand’s global impact, the GV80 Concept employs the latest plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric technology to combine eco-performance and capability, all skillfully designed to fulfill the needs and explore the escapes of the urban adventurer.
