NEW YORK – The New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) entrants in its annual Design Excellence Awards learned the results of the competition at a dinner gala. Artistic Marble & Granite Surfaces of Hawthorne, N.J. and Blackman sponsored the event.
For the Chapter’s Design Excellence Awards, designers could submit projects in residential and commercial/non-residential sectors. All entries had to have used at least one Industry Partner at the time of the project to be submitted.
“Successful entries demonstrated exceptional design and positive impact on life and the human experience in keeping with ASID’s mission,” said Anna Maria Mannarino, allied ASID, president of the New Jersey Chapter. “The Design Excellence awards reinforce the ASID commitment to important design principles.”
Judges were comprised of a diverse group of award-winning ASID members from around the country and judging was based on the following criteria with a points system: Effectiveness of the design solution, functional use of space, scale and proportion, color and composition, innovative use of materials, creativity of the design solution, effective use of lighting, use of sustainable design principles and use of Universal Design principles.
