The Interior Design Hall of Fame has welcomed four new members to its storied ranks: interiors whiz Nada Andric of Skidmore Owings & Merrill, importer and curator George Beylerian (founder of Material ConneXion and Culture & Commerce), interior designer David Kleinberg, and Patricia Urquiola, whose Milan-based design studio focuses on product design, architecture, and interiors. Interior Design honored the inductees last night at its 27th annual Hall of Fame awards gala, held at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Meanwhile, tonight the magazine moves down to Hall of Famer Frank Gehry‘s IAC building for its Best of Year Awards. Among the products and projects up for the honor are Andre Kikoski‘s warehouse-to-retail Wyckoff Exchange, the Rockwell Group-designed Untitled restaurant at the Whitney Museum, Karim Rashid‘s “Woopy” chair, and a pendant light from Yellow Goat Designs known as “Fat Fuzzy Thing.” Look for a full list of winners in the December issue of Interior Design.
