On Monday, May 20th, more than 700 guests gathered at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan to once again celebrate the winners of the fourth annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, presented by Interior Design and ICFF. By now, NYCxDESIGN needs no introduction—the overwhelmingly popular design festival attracted more than 347,000 attendees and sponsored over 400 events in all five boroughs in 2018. The NYCxDESIGN Awards extol the best projects and products that were either created or shown in New York City this year.
After a few brief introductory comments by the NYCEDC’s CMO Edward Hogikyan and ICFF director Kevin O’Keefe, Interior Design Editor in Chief Cindy Allen resumed her duties as M.C. of the event. This year she had over 200 finalists in the products category to announce, as well as over 100 projects. Winners of each respective category were awarded with the highly-coveted Lladró Guest figurine.
The awards ceremony started with product winners, which included the Vettis™ concrete bath fitting collection from Brizo, Astek’s ceramics-inspired Re-Glazed wallcovering collection with interior designer Jeff Andrews, and Buoyant NYC’s quartz and onyx stone DELLA Sconce. Project winners included the Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group behemoth, The Shed; Chelsea’s newest speakeasy, The 18th Room, by West Chin Architects; and the Glossier NYC Flagship store by Gachot Studios.
A big thank you to all of our NYCXDESIGN Award partners:
