The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) in partnership with Interiors & Sources magazine for a new sustainable design awards. Called the Bloom Awards, this prize recognizes achievements of sustainable products in interior commercial design. The new program will choose a product winner in five different categories: furniture, flooring, textiles, lighting and innovative materials. “ASID is constantly looking for new ways to become involved in the sustainable movement and this new program with Interiors & Sources is another venture I’m proud of,” says Michael Alin, ASID Executive Director. “Green design is not a fad for our members, it’s part of practicing responsible design. All of our members, whether it’s students, designers or manufacturers, are in need of green materials and products and we’re pleased to recognize the companies that are leading the way and allowing our members to create sustainable spaces.” Get your glue guns, hammers and screwdrivers out: entries are due September 15.
