Winners Announced for the Nation Design Awards (day one and not yet any turmoil)

By Steve Delahoyde Comment


After all the hubub surrounding last year’s National Design Awards, it’ll be interesting to see if there’s a repeat scandal. We’re guessing not, because, let’s face it, you boycott something too many times in a row and it starts getting a little tired, doesn’t it? Anyway, here’s the just released list (pdf) of the big winners:

Lifetime Achievement: Antoine Predock

Corporate Acheivement: Adobe

The Design Mind Award: Denise Scott Brown & Robert Venturi

Special Jury Commendation: Frank Ching

Architecture Design: Office dA

Communications Design: Chip Kidd

Fashion Design: Rick Owens

Interior Design: Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis

Landscape Design: Peter Walkers and Partners

Product Design: Jonathan Ive

(Thank goodness Jonathan Ive is finally being honored. We were starting to think that that guy was never going to get any attention.)
