2012 Hyland Award for Excellence in Design

Amongst industry friends, HYLAND magazine editor-in-chief Christopher Hyland presented interior designers Alexa Hampton, Edward Yedid, and Guillaume Gentet with awards for outstanding achievement in interior design last week at the Bar Room in Manhattan. In addition, Ferguson & Shamamian and Mark Roskams were honored for architectural design and photography, respectively.

“I am truly honored by this award,” said Gentet. ”It’s a privilege to be recognized by Mr. Hyland, alongside individuals who share my love for interior design.”

"The HYLAND awards began as an ardent belief that individuals, organizations, and firms should be recognized for excellence achieved across a diverse array of design styles, products, and services," said Hyland. "To that end, the HYLAND awards for design and photography are themselves impressive objects of inspired design—the HYLAND design awards are produced by the venerable P.E. Guerin, and the HYLAND photography awards by the esteemed Baccarat."

Seven people weigh in during the process of choosing the award recipients, led by Hyland himself and HYLAND editor and director Kyle Marshall. The primary selection focus is based on excellent design projects, lifestyle, and/or excellence in design products, according to Hyland.

Each of the HYLAND award winners and their work will be published in an upcoming issue of HYLAND magazine.

Past HYLAND award recipients include Paige Rense, former Architectural Digest editor-in-chief for Lifetime Achievement; interior designers Samuel Botero, Geoffrey Bradfield, Stephen Bastone, Mario Buatta, and Jamie Drake; and AGi Architects and Fairfax & Sammons Architects.
