  • Suzanne Tick Marker Glass by Skyline Design, Booth 547
  • Mondo IDEA by Mondo, Booth 256
Additionally, this year’s judges bestowed an Honorable Mention designation to ITC, Inc. for its Illuminated Safety Handle (Booth 125), citing the product as “a great start to an innovative and needed solution in the market.”

Winners will receive editorial coverage in an upcoming issue of Contract magazine, as well as on the publication's ContractDesign.com Web site, and receive a certificate and personalized glass award.

This year’s jurors—Debbie McDonald, principal, Agnew Peckham; Pamela Redden, director, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center; Brad Smith, principal and creative director, Taylor; and Jocelyn Stroupe, principal, Cannon Design—walked the show floor prior to the conference’s opening on Saturday, November 13, and Sunday, November 14, to view each of the 32 entries. Each product was evaluated on merits of overall contribution to the quality of healthcare; functionality; quality/durability; aesthetics/style; environmental sustainability; and pricing.

During the judges’ deliberation, “Where is the innovation?” was the common question posed to each product under review. “The competition is meant to designate those products directly contributing to the quality of healthcare. We’re looking to recognize those products that are innovative, present something new that we haven’t seen before, and meet an existing need in the market,” say the judges during their deliberation.
