Each year, the ASID bestows the title of Fellow to individuals who demonstrate outstanding service and contributions to the Society, the profession, and the interior design industry. It is the highest distinction a member can receive from ASID.
“The 2015 ASID Fellows are recognized for their significant contributions toward improving the built environment and its effect on the human experience,” said Sonya Dufner, FASID, chair of the ASID Council of Fellows and principal and director of workplace strategy at Gensler . “The designers selected for this honor are trailblazers in our industry and, through their contributions to our profession and their dedication to design, they each have made a far-reaching impact on the quality of our lives.”
The 2015 ASID Fellows are: Edward Bottomley, ASID; Trudy Dujardin, ASID, LEED AP+D+C; Joan Kaufman, ASID; Jean Pinto, ASID, CID; and Patrick Schmidt, ASID, RID. They will be inducted on July 18, 2015, at Celebration: The ASID Awards Gala at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
