Hubbardton Forge won the top award for design achievement in lighting at this year’s Pinnacle Awards.
The awards are presented by the American Society of Furniture Designers and given out annually during the Fall High Point Market. This year, awards were presented in 15 categories including furniture, accessories and lighting, at a gala ceremony on Oct. 20.
Hubbardton Forge won for its Dyad Table Lamp, designed by David Martin, Charles Camacho and George Chandler. The lamp’s base is made with a satin steel finish and ash with an espresso finish. The shades come in both a round and rectangle shapes.
The company beat out Murray Feiss, which was nominated for the Ribbon Lamp and the Silver Glass Lamp, both of which were designed by Landis Kauffman and Jeff Hannoosh for the Martha Stewart collection.
The American Society of Furniture Designers launched The Pinnacle Awards in 1995 to promote better design in the furniture industry and to recognize furniture designers that work on furniture that is produced in high-volume and is for sale in major furniture stores. To be considered, the furniture had to be available for sale in at least 20 furniture stores.
