Rottet Collection wins Prize Designs for Modern Furniture + Lighting
NEW YORK, Aug. 2023 – Lauren Rottet, FAIA, FIIDA, internationally
celebrated architect, designer and founding principal/president and owner of Rottet Studio, captured three Design Awards for Modern Furniture + Lighting, claiming two for her Rottet Collection – the Dark & Stormy Table and the Walking Bench – along with a win for her Fascio Collection Sconces for Visual Comfort & Co. The competition represented submissions from a total of 24 countries and was juried by an esteemed roster of international design professionals. “I am honored to achieve this international recognition for my product designs and showcase them at a global level,” said Rottet. “I thank the jury and congratulate my fellow awardees.”
Organized by Global Design News in tandem with The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, the original awards program was launched in 1949 by The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). ‘The Prize Designs for Modern Furniture” were conceived to encourage the best of contemporary design while highlighting exemplary examples in the furniture industry, and thereby stimulating manufacturing of mass-produced products. Seven decades later, this award is now experieincing a global relaunch.
The Dark and Stormy Table won Best Table of the Year. It integrates clear and colored resins resulting in a minimalist form, while capturing and casting light in the surrounding space.
The Walking Bench, which garnered Best Seating of Year, highlights angled legs and marble construction, and was originally designed as indoor/outdoor seating for the entry foyer at the Kips Bay Show House in Dallas.
Lastly, the Fascio Collection of Sconces by Lauren Rottet for Visual
Comfort & Co. was named Best Wall Lighting of the Year. This collection
manufactured from highly refined, cut crystal is comprised of faceted glass
tubes and rods that are bound and include wall sconces (below),
pendant lights and chandeliers.
The Rottet Collection along with The Beauty of Black and White can
be viewed at the Rottet Collection Showroom, 29 West 30th St., 6th Floor.
