“We are honoured that a jury of distinguished design professionals and leading industry specialists selected many of Teknion’s latest contract furnishing products to receive these international awards for design excellence,” said David Feldberg, Teknion president and CEO, in a press release. “Our Good Design Awards would not have been possible without our talented international partners – Justus Kolberg, Tom Lloyd, Luke Pearson, Pablo Pardo and Michael Vanderbyl – plus members of our own in-house design team.”
