IIDA Reveals 2022 Awardees and Will Announce Best in Competition Winner at the Start of NeoCon

The enduring International Design Competition is in its 49th year. The annual event, hosted by the International Interior Design Association, honors innovation in the design, architecture, and furnishing of interior spaces. Its counterpart, the Will Ching Design Competition, in its 30th year, celebrates excellence in commercial interiors by firms composed of five or fewer employees. This year’s submissions were judged for their suitability and originality—with special attention paid to how finishes and furnishings are integrated—by a jury consisting of Shimoda Design group partner Susan Chang, Interactive Design Architects president Dina Griffin, and Studio Munge founder and design director Alessandro Munge.

Two of the awardees they selected have appeared in the pages of Interior Design: LSM’s Paul Hastings office in Washington on page 144 of this issue is the Large Corporate Space winner, and the Audrey Irmas Pavilion in Los Angeles by OMA and Gruen Associates featured in our April issue won for Public Spaces & Commercial Lobbies. The jury’s other picks are Prefix Design’s own office in Chengdu and One Plus Partnership’s Cinesky Cinema in Shenzhen, both in China; a Napa Valley, California, residence by Aidlin Darling Design; and Genesis House in New York by Suh Architects and HLW; Stüdyo AB’s Cocoon Istanbul takes home the Will Ching Award. All are toasted—and the Best in Competition winner revealed—at the IIDA’s black-tie Revel in Design gala in Chicago on June 12, the kickoff to the annual NeoCon trade fair.
