MODFIRE WINNER FOR BEST FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES DESIGN IN THE 1ST ANNUAL DWELL ON DESIGN AWARDS
LOS ANGELES, CA JUNE 25, 2011 - Dwell Magazine today named Modfire as Best Furniture and Accessory Design at the 2011 Dwell on Design show in Loas Angeles. This honor was awarded by an independent jury of five industry professionals representing the breadth and depth of the design community – including the fields of product design, architecture, media and beyond.
Modfire is a modern outdoor fireplace designed and manufactured by Modfire, LLC in Phoenix, AZ. The designer, Brandon Williams, first created Modfire to complement his own mid-century ranch home in Phoenix. Each one is fabricated by steel artisans who hand finish each piece to maintain the level of quality and design. More information on the product and company can be found at www.modfire.com.
The award was given by Dwell Editor Samuel Grawe during a presentation at the Dwell on Design show on June 24.2011. Over the past five years, Dwell on Design has grown in size and stature to become a leading showcase for the modern design community. The Dwell on Design Awards were introduced at the 2011 show to honor the exhibitors whose commitment and vision bring this event to life.
“We’re always inspired by the caliber of talent on view at the exhibition,” says Dwell Media President Michela O’Connor Abrams. “We established the Dwell on Design Awards to celebrate the quality and innovation of this work.” More information on the Dwell on Design Awards and a full list of winners can be found athttp://www.dwell.com/articles/2011-dwell-on-design-awards.html.
