Designer Richard Frinier
Wins Platinum ADEX Award

Friday, March 2, 2018

Known for his timeless aesthetic and unique design perspective, esteemed designer Richard Frinier received a Platinum award for his Studio Collection of Sunbrella fabrics in this year’s ADEX awards competition, an industry recognition of design excellence and product innovation.

“Richard has an extraordinary passion and dedication to his work,” says Greg Rosendale, business manager, Jobber Market for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, the maker of Sunbrella fabrics. “The Studio Collection fuses Richard’s eye for design with Sunbrella’s legendary performance for a winning combination. We are honored to have Richard as a partner and congratulate him on his continued success.”

The Studio Collection sweeps in the essences of wide-open spaces, high ceilings, and walls of glass that allow natural light to fill a room. The collection features a refined yet approachable mix of graphic grid and linear patterns presented in neutral shades, with interesting layers and textures. Designed to be mixed and matched for a variety of easy-to-style textile design solutions, these fabrics subtly capture the infusion of beauty and practicality characteristic of today’s urban spaces.

“The architectural style and play of light inherent in urban artisanal studios and lofts intrigues and inspires me,” Frinier says. “It is very meaningful for me to translate my inspirations and perspective into design and to be recognized by the design community in this way. I am grateful to share this ADEX Platinum Design Excellence Award with Sunbrella for The Studio Collection.”
