IIDA names IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Award winners

IIDA has announced the winners of the 2022 IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Awards, which honor products that excel across seven criteria: 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 focus on comfort and connection with the user are key to the hospitality industry’s success,” said Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIID, and AIIDA executive vice president and chief executive officer. “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.”


This year’s jury of design professionals included Mari Ansera, IIDA, NOMA, HGA senior interior designer and associate vice president; Mike Johnson II, IIDA, Perkins & Will senior associate and senior interior designer; and Jason Valentin, IIDA, One Line Design Studio LLC project designer.

“We were highly impressed by the winners’ unique and compelling concepts in a competitive marketplace,” said Ansera on behalf of the jury. “The winning products demonstrate a human-centered approach to innovation by integrating people’s needs, technological possibilities and business acumen.”
