ASID Names Mark Brunetz as Emcee for Celebration – The ASID Design Awards
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 14, 2013) | The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is excited to announce Mark Brunetz, Emmy Award-winning television host, interior designer and celebrated author, as the emcee of the Society's annual Celebration design awards gala scheduled for June 21 in Los Angeles.
Brunetz‘s influence within the design industry is far-reaching with his work in makeover television seen in more than 30 countries. At the creative helm of Mark Brunetz Designs, he has launched a line of home furnishings on the Home Shopping Network, authored a book on living clutter free and founded Design Without Borders, a non-profit initiative that conducts makeovers in developing areas of the world. He currently serves as spokesperson for the International Design Guild’s Designer Program and is the face of its Design For a Difference competition, benefiting local charities across the United States.
Celebration – The ASID Design Awards is the Society’s annual black-tie, red carpet gala honoring the best in design. This year’s theme pays homage to both the legacy and future of design with an evening of Roaring 20s live jazz, an open bar and seated dinner.
Celebration also supports the ASID Foundation partnership with The 1% program of Public Architecture, through a live and silent auction. Attendees will have the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind experiences and products dedicated to celebrating design, such as one week at an Italian villa, lunch and a NYC design tour with Jamie Drake, a KnollStudio Wassily Chair and more. For a full listing of auction items and donors, visit the Foundation's website at: www.asidfoundation.org.
Tickets to Celebration are available to both ASID members and the general public for $200.
