Yabu Pushelberg Receives 2014 IIDA Star Award

The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has honored Toronto-based design firm Yabu Pushelberg with the 2014 IIDA Star Award. Given to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the design industry, the award will be presented at the association’s Annual Meeting on June 8th at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

“Yabu Pushelberg’s commitment to the highest standards of hospitality and retail design is evident in the vigorous innovation of the firm’s work, and is reflected in the many honors that George and Glenn have received,” says Cheryl S. Durst, executive vice president and CEO of IIDA. “Because of this demonstrated commitment and its far-reaching impact elevating the profession worldwide, we are pleased to honor and celebrate Yabu Pushelberg as this year’s Star Award recipient.”

Founded in 1980 by Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu, Yabu Pushelberg focuses on design and project management, specializing in interior, furniture, and product design for the hospitality and retail industries. With studios in Toronto, New York, and most recently in Guangzhou, China, Yabu and Pushelberg have developed and realized their vision through distinctive projects around the world, including Bergdorf Goodman New York; the Four Seasons Hotels in Toronto and Tokyo; the W Hotel in Times Square; Louis Vuitton, Hong Kong; the Viceroy Maldives Resort, and many more.

The firm has received numerous high industry honors, such as Hospitality Design magazine’s Platinum Circle Award, the James Beard Foundation Award for Excellence in Restaurant Design, and recently Best of Competition honors for the firm’s design of the W Guangzhou in China in the 2013 IIDA Best of Asia Pacific Design Awards. The principals have also been honored as Contract magazine’s Designers of the Year. In December 2013, Yabu and Pushelberg were awarded the Order of Canada — the country’s highest honor — for their contributions to international design excellence.
