Renowned for identifying and awarding the best-of-the-best in contemporary and modern design innovation each year, The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, and The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies recently recognized celebrated designer Richard Frinier and his partners with three GOOD DESIGN awards for his imaginative textile collections for Sunbrella, and innovative furniture design for Brown Jordan respectively

Founded in Chicago in 1950, GOOD DESIGN is touted as one of world’s oldest and most recognized design award programs for global design excellence; winning submissions become a part of the Museum’s permanent design archive.

“I am honored to share these awards with Sunbrella and Brown Jordan. These designations are incredibly meaningful to me given the history and legacy of the underlying design program originally founded in Chicago by the former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., together with such legendary pioneers in modern design as Charles and Ray Eames, Russel Wright, George Nelson, and Eero Saarinen,” says Frinier.

The winning designs include: the Network Collection of Sunbrella textiles conceptualized to reference the designer’s interpretation of the world-changing phenomenon that is the shared digital content of social media. And the Architexture Collection exploring architecture’s influence on society at large and the growing global design trend surrounding the surfacing and resurfacing of buildings with new, recycled and repurposed materials.

Frinier’s STILL Mobile Console Table + Serving Cart is the most recent addition to the more expansive and award-winning STILL Collection from Brown Jordan. The versatile multi-purpose occasional table and serving cart is designed to be used with or without wheels, resulting in a transformational go-to design and easy addition for living and dining rooms, kitchens, and wine bar areas, libraries, home offices, and poolside.
