Jim Olson, Tom Kundig Among New Members of Interior Design Hall of Fame

Interior Design magazine is gearing up to add five members to its Hall of Fame: hotel interiors whiz Alexandra Champalimaud, product designer Patrick Jouin, Seattle-based architects Jim Olson and Tom Kundig, and the multitalented Michael Vanderbyl, who currently serves as the Dean of Design at California College of the Arts (having taught graphic design there for more than 30 years). They’ll be honored at a gala on Wednesday evening at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, where the inductees will join the storied ranks of ID Hall of Famers such as Thierry Despont, Frank Gehry, Albert Hadley, and Andree Putman.

Then, on Thursday, the magazine moves downtown, to the Pei Cobb Freed & Partners-designed Goldman Sachs HQ, for its Best of Year Awards. Among the products and projects up for the honor–which comes with a snappy Harry Allen-designed lightbulb trophy–are Gensler’s offices for Facebook, the LED-embdedded swoop that is the Taj lamp designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell, a riveting metallic wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries, and Zaha Hadid‘s London Aquatics Centre, which is something of a ringer in the “hospitality: beauty/spa/fitness” category.
