Toast IIDA’s Annual Design Competition Winners at NeoCon
Design is on a role. According to the top 200 firms surveyed for our Interior Design Giants research, they made $5.5 billion in fees last year, surpassing the decade high of $5.4 billion in 2019. What’s also rising? The number of entrants to IIDA’s Annual Interior Design and Will Ching Design Competitions (the latter honoring the work of commercial firms with five or less employees). Winners in seven categories were selected from 300 international submissions by a jury made up of Sarah Kuchar-Parkinson, Kuchar owner and creative director; Leyden Lewis, Leyden Lewis Design Studio founder and creative director; and Wimberly Interiors SVP and global director, Margaret McMahon. “No detail or corner was left unstudied in these spaces,” Kuchar-Parkinson says. All, including hometown project 800 Fulton Market by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, will be celebrated in Chicago on June 11 at IIDA’s black-tie gala, which kicks off the NeoCon trade show.
