The Design Innovation Award recognizes an individual, organization, manufacturer or research project for having produced a significant and innovative product, project or body of work that contributes to interior design by positively impacting human behavior; promoting comfort, efficiency or communication; exemplifying a commitment to the profession; exhibiting a commitment to sustainability, health, and wellness; and displaying an overall appreciation for design.
Eligible parties include any individual, organization, manufacturer or research project that has made lasting and significant contributions to the body of knowledge that supports the profession of interior design. National officers, board members, jurors and Awards Committee members are ineligible during their terms of service.
Each year, the Society president appoints an Awards Committee of ASID professional members, fellows and members of the design community. This committee reviews nominees and selects an honoree. View bios of the 2015 awards judges.
The honoree will receive an engraved crystal award at Celebration, the Society's annual gala to be held on July 18, 2015, in Boston.
