Interior Design’s 7th Annual NYCxDESIGN Awards Kicked Off the City’s Biggest Celebration of Design
Nearly 500 designers, architects, and manufacturers gathered at Penn 1 in Manhattan last night to celebrate the winners and honorees of the 7th annual NYCxDESIGN Awards hosted by Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen. The ceremony, which marked the start of the 10th annual NYCxDESIGN Festival, kicked off with celebratory remarks by Elissa Black, executive director of NYCxDESIGN, who noted that “the festival truly unites New York City’s diverse and expansive design community.”
Black also recognized the magazine’s 90th anniversary and Allen’s 20-year tenure as editor in chief before turning over the stage. “It’s amazing that you’re here with us,” Allen said as the crowd erupted in a round of applause. “Can you believe that we’re back after two years!”
Before the ceremony got underway, Allen gave a big shout out to event partners: Cosentino, Williams-Sonoma Business to Business, Material Bank and NYC Media and Entertainment, pointing out the return of the iconic Lladró NYCxDESIGN Award trophy. Then the crowd sat perched on their seats, awaiting news of the winners for products, students and the city’s many amazing projects. Take a look at event snaps below.
Following the awards, guests settled into for an evening of cocktails and games—old and new. From Pac Man to the latest video games, attendees had no shortage of opportunities to mix and mingle throughout the festive evening.
