Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, July 6, 2011
The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) announced the winners and finalists of its annual IDEA product design awards. Among the winners was veteran industry designer and IDSA member, Richard Frinier, for his Cloud Nine creation from the 2011 Richard Frinier Collection for Brown Jordan.
Frinier has been designing for the home furnishings industry for more than 30 years with the majority of his design contributions focused on highly stylized exterior furnishings, textiles, lighting and accessories so well executed by his manufacturing partners that the designs are equally specified and enjoyed for interior placements for residential, contract and hospitality environments.
Over the past 30 years, Frinier has garnered more than 70 product design and career achievement awards, including a Stars of Design Award from the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Casual Furnishings Association.
