Michael Vanderbyl Receives 2014 IIDA Titan Award

04 February, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell



The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has named Michael Vanderbyl, IIDA, as recipient of its 2014 Titan Award, which recognizes significant contributions to the interior design profession. Vanderbyl, currently dean of design at California College of the Arts, started Vanderbyl Design in 1973. He helped usher in San Francisco as a center of the postmodern movement in graphic design during the 1980s. Vanderbyl’s work also has encompassed furniture and product design, as well as showrooms and retail spaces.

“His expressed goal through the years has been to merge, wherever possible, forms of design that traditionally exist separately to create new, distinctively fused works of art,” according to a statement from IIDA.

“Michael, through his multidisciplinary approach and commitment to Design, has forged a career path that is nothing short of extraordinary,” IIDA executive vice president and CEO Cheryl Durst, Hon. FIIDA, said. “His innovative contributions to numerous design disciplines as well as his more than 30 years of design teaching have made him a vital force in the international design community, and we are exceedingly proud to acknowledge him as the recipient of this year’s IIDA Titan Award.”

Vanderbyl’s work appears in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Denver Art Museum; Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; and the Library of Congress.
