A “Giant” Welcome to #IDneocon
In spite of the rain, over 500 designers, architects and manufacturers created the perfect storm of drive, passion and perfectionism last night at our annual Giants Celebration kicking off #IDneocon in Chicago! This year’s event filled the old Kohler Co. digs on the first floor of the Merchandise Mart—now a raw space with tons of industrial character, including the original graffitilike tags of the builders. Hosted by editor in chief Cindy Allen and publisher Carol Cisco, we’d like to think the evening’s celebrations added to the sense of history by revealing the winners of Interior Design‘s second-annual HiP Awards—go here for all winners—honoring the industry’s most influential people and their design solutions. HiP, HiP Hooray, here’s to another amazing year at NeoCon!
