The 29th annual Hall of Fame celebration saw record attendees—the largest crowd since 2007—as 1,300 of the design industry's notables gathered to celebrate this year's Interior Design inductees: Paul Masi and Harry Bates of Bates Masi + Architects, Collin Burry of Gensler, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu of Neri&Hu, and Kenneth Wampler of The Alpha Workshops. Industry luminaries from around the world gathered at the Waldorf Astoria in New York to toast the inductees for the annual black-tie event hosted by Interior Design's editor in chief Cindy Allen and president Mark Strauss.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1985 by Interior Design to recognize the individuals who have made significant contributions to the growth and prominence of the design industry. Previous Hall of Fame inductees include legendary figures such as: Antonio Citterio, Clodagh, Thiery W. Despont, Frank Gehry, Albert Hadley, Andree Putman, David Rockwell, Lauren Rottet, Philippe Starck, and Robert A.M. Stern, to name a few.
The industry's most anticipated event is held at Manhattan's Waldorf-Astoria with a sophisticated crowd of 1,300 guests from the design industry. A venerable "Who's Who" of the top style makers come to honor the new inductees, who are selected from a nomination body of previous Hall of Fame members.
The black-tie event begins with a cocktail reception that fills all three of the salons outside of the Grand Ballroom. A special VIP reception is held additionally with invited guests ranging from Hall of Fame members, benefactors, editors, members of the press, and platinum and gold sponsors. Dinner, the awards ceremony, and after-party follow the reception. Mark Strauss, President, Interior Design Media Group and Cindy Allen, Editor in Chief, Interior Design, host the awards ceremony. An inspirational documentary of each of the inductees is shown and inductees are present to accept award. It is the Academy Awards of the interior design industry.
We'd like to thank our 2013 sponsors for their support of the 29th Annual Hall of Fame Awards where all event proceeds benefit the Council for Interior Design Accreditation and The Alpha Workshops through a donor-designated grant by DIFFA, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS.
