NEW YORK-Three companies—including two first time exhibitors and one long-standing market participant—received Accent on Design awards in recognition of product design excellence, innovation and creativity. The winners are all exhibitors in Accent on Design, a juried collection of contemporary designs showcased at the winter 2014 edition of NY Now.
Awards were presented in the categories of Excellence in Product Design, Best New Collection, and Overall Excellence.
Excellence in Product Design was given to London-based Tom Dixon for its entire collection of accessories, gifts and design objects formed from resilient and heavyweight materials.
Best New Collection was awarded to Finell of Austin, Texas, for its collection of neo luxe housewares and accessories.
Overall Excellence was given to Tina Frey Designs of San Francisco for its modern designs in resin, a collection of useful everyday objects and jewelry.
“These talented Accent on Design participants have introduced a higher level of functionality and aesthetics within the home and lifestyle categories worthy of this special recognition,” said Jaime Sikorjak, Accent on Design sales manager.
