The fifth annual NYCxDESIGN Awards may be over, but the careers of six student design winners are just beginning to ramp up. Material Bank sponsored the Student Design category, enabling undergraduate and graduate students to submit their designs at no cost, and with so many stellar designs to chose from, selecting six winners was no easy task. “A huge congrats to all our amazing students,” Interior Design Editor in Chief Cindy Allen said, capping off the first ever virtual ceremony hosted in partnership with ICFF. Here's a closer look at the NYCxDESIGN award-winning standout projects.
