See who’s tops in hospitality design

Nanimarquina’s Tones Collection designed by artist Clàudia Valsells was the winner of the IIDA/HD Expo Annual Product Design Competition in the Flooring: Carpets or Rugs category.

The hospitality industry bestowed design awards on the top products showcased at the recent HD Expo. Many of the winners, including several home accent suppliers, also work in the residential sector.

The winners of the 2022 IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Awards excelled across seven criteria including aesthetics, cost and value, design innovation, environmental responsibility, need, technical advancements, and usage. This year, entries were judged in person by a panel of design industry professionals. The IIDA is a commercial interior design association.

“The focus on comfort and connection with the user are key to the hospitality industry’s success,” said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA. “This year’s winning selections offer all of these elements and more as designers, manufacturers, and the industry continue to anticipate and exceed guest expectations.”
