This year’s Design Hall of Fame inductees, chosen by Interior Design Editor in Chief Cindy Allen and a nominating committee of previous honorees, include Anda Andrei of Anda Andrei Design; Brad Zizmor and Dag Folger of A+I; São Paulo architect Isay Weinfeld; and Cheryl S. Durst of International Interior Design Association, who is receiving a leadership award.
“The Hall of Fame honors architects, interior designers, and industry luminaries whose talent, vision, and dedication contribute to design’s impact everywhere. Simply put, it’s our Oscars!” said Allen. “This year, we focus our laser beam on the leading categories in our sphere—workplace, hospitality and residential—and our inductees’ collective design enhances the lives of their clients, many communities and our world.”
“For 32 years the Hall of Fame has been celebrated in the Waldorf Astoria’s Grand Ballroom,” says Carol Cisco, publisher of Interior Design. “In light of the hotel’s closing for renovations, this year will be particularly meaningful for our community.” The celebration will take place on November 30 and will benefit the Council for Interior Design Accreditation and The Alpha Workshops.
