Interior and furniture designer Christopher Guy will receive the Design Icon award from World Market Center Las Vegas and Las Vegas Design Center during Winter Market.
The Design Icon award celebrates modern-day design legends and gives them a platform to share their stories and inspire others. Past honorees include Juan Montoya, Vicente Wolf, Roger Thomas, Vladimir Kagan and Larry Laslo.
“It is a tremendous honor to be receiving such a prominent award, and a tribute to the 1,400 craftsmen at Christopher Guy who resolutely recreate my designs with their skill and passion, and who ultimately brought it to the attention of such a prestigious panel,” says Guy.
International influences define Guy's design aesthetic and differentiate his artistic sensibilities. He was born in Britain, spent his childhood in Spain and France, and now lives in Singapore. Guy got his start making mirror designs in 1993, which were sold under the name Harrison and Gil, a mirror frame collection. The work expanded over the years to include original furnishings and accessories, and in 2006 the Christopher Guy brand was born.
“Calling on years of experience working in diverse environments around the world, Christopher's designs blend glamorous lines with traditional craftsmanship, creating an unmistakable signature aesthetic that will endure for many years to come. Having the opportunity to glean ideas and inspiration from his story firsthand will be a special occasion for designers attending Las Vegas Market,” said Randy Wells, Vice President of the Las Vegas Design Center.
Guy will share his story and design outlook Thursday, January 27 at 10:30 a.m. followed by an awards ceremony.
