Inaugural Fantini Design Award Winners Announced


Design by Centaur Interiors, Chicago

Fantini USA is proud to announce the winners of the first-annual Fantini Design Awards. Architects, designers and building developers were asked to submit eligible projects that show how Fantini designs helped make their vision a reality.

To win, applicants must have submitted high-resolution photos of a project completed between January 1, 2015, and July 17, 2017, in either the U.S. or Canada. Fantini specified that submitted projects should bear some connection to or be influenced by water. Judges Stefano Giussani, CEO of Lissoni Inc.; DJ Carey, editorial director of Cottages & Gardens Media; and Rebecca Thienes, senior editor of Interior Design Magazine, selected the six winning projects.

“Fantini is committed to supporting the architecture and design community and to fostering artistic excellence,” said Riccardo Conti, managing director, Fantini USA. “It is our hope that creating a way to celebrate the best applications of Fantini designs will give back to A&D professionals, inspire new relationships and enrich our future collaborations with the best minds in design.”

One representative per winning project will travel to Casa Fantini/Lake Time resort in Pella, Italy, this October. Designer Piero Lissoni, along with Lissoni Architecture Milan, designed the lakeside resort, which was purposefully placed near the water to highlight Fantini’s design influences.
