ISFD Announces 2020 Pinnacle Awards Winners
The coveted 2020 Pinnacle Awards, sponsored by the International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD), are the furniture industry’s highest honor recognizing the top professional and student furniture designers who envision and create the designs that ultimately become some of the most sought-after home furnishings items around the world. Their works are produced and marketed by companies large and small, but with a common denominator—to proudly illustrate that artistry, craft, and innovation are important and quite desirable to the consumer marketplace.
The Pinnacle Awards Major Collections winner was Universal Furniture’s Nina Magon Collection designed by Nina Magon, Dudley Moore and Laura Niece.
The Pinnacle finalists were recognized and the winners revealed on Saturday, October 24 during the Pinnacle Awards’ Great Designs Unmasked, an online TV-style program on ISFD’s YouTube channel. Acclaimed interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins keynoted the awards ceremony.
