Shaw Hospitality Group Receives Designer’s Choice award
David Perry -- Furniture Today, January 11, 2010
Interior Design magazine named the Factory collection by Shaw Hospitality Group a Designer’s Choice winner in its Best of Year Awards 2009.
Interior Design, which is owned by HTT parent company Reed Business Information, received more than 1,100 entries for the competition, and the design community cast more than 40,000 votes online to determine the winners.
Factory, which also won the IIDA/HD Product Design Award in the flooring/carpeting/rug category at HD 2009 Expo & Conference, was inspired by the 1934 Museum of Modern Art exhibition “Machine Art,” which celebrated the form of objects created purely for functionality. Factory contrasts “the sharp intricacies of machinery with the soft flow of kinetic rhythm,” according to Shaw.
The Best of Year Awards recognizes interior design projects and products in 64 categories.
