A jury of three architects, two lighting designers, and one interiors director selected the best new products of the year, choosing from the hundreds of entries submitted to Architectural Record’s annual competition. Jurors rated each hopeful according to innovation, usefulness, and aesthetics. We showcase the winners and their flashes of genius on the following pages.
ARCHITECTURAL RECORD's editors put out a call for manufacturers to send us the best new building products on the market-from furniture to flashing-and invite a jury of architects, designers, and product specialists to review product data sheets, photos, and sometimes real samples, to help us determine which are the most outstanding.
Architectural Record is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Products of the Year competition. Chosen by an independent jury of U.S.-based architects and designers, the 53 winners represent a selection of the world's top materials, systems, and furnishings.
