IIDA has announced the winners of the 2022 IIDA/HD Expo Product Design Awards. The prestigious competition honored products that excelled across seven criteria including aesthetics, cost and value, design innovation, environmental responsibility, need, technical advancements, and usage. This year, entries were judged in person by a panel of notable design industry professionals.

"The focus on comfort and connection with the user are key to the hospitality industry’s success,” said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA. “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 HGA Senior Interior Designer and Associate Vice President Mari Ansera, IIDA, NOMA; Perkins&Will Senior Associate and Senior Interior Designer Mike Johnson II, IIDA; and One Line Design Studio LLC Project Designer Jason Valentin, IIDA.
