transFORM sponsored the Architecture category and transFORM Co-Founders, Andreas Messis and Stuart Reisch, presented the award at the ceremony. transFORM congratulates the Architecture winner De-Spec and runner-up, Andre Tchelistcheff Architects on their awards.


The NYC&G IDAs benefited The Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and the Boys and Girls Club Youth Chorus provided lively entertainment for the attendees during the ceremony.


The Innovator Award recipient and NYC&G IDAs Honoree, Holly Hunt, shared her wisdom and experience from years in the design industry during her acceptance speech and even stopped for a photo with transFORM Design Manager, Rozalia Kiss, and Co-founders, Andreas Messis and Stuart Reisch.


It was excellent to meet our peers in the interior design community and catch up with partners and old friends. transFORM thanks the Cottages & Gardens staff for a great night full of fun that supports and honors the flourishing business of design in New York.
