Fast Company has released what they consider to be the 10 best designs of the year. Selected from over 1500 international submissions and 53 finalists, the MIT-born Solar System platform Mapdwell and Jonas Dahlberg’s “Memory Wound” were among the winners to receive the 2014 “Innovation by Design Award.”

Winner of the award’s “Data Visualization” category, the Mapdwell Project provides communities with an open, online rooftop-solar mapping tool that estimates the solar electric potential of any given address by providing information regarding costs, benefits and even optimal panel placement. It was lauded by the judges for its “intuitive user interface, which crunches lots of data to become usable, business-forward, and most importantly, relevant to you.”

In addition to this, Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg took top honors in the “Spaces” category for his powerful, three-and-a-half meter wide “Memory Wound” which will be carved into the Norwegian Sørbråten peninsular as a monument to those lost in the 2011 Utøya terror attacks.

You can view all the winners, including Nike’s Magista soccer cleat and the Biolite Homestove, here on Fast Company.
