We are thrilled to share three of our projects have been selected as finalists for Interior Design’s 2021 Best of Year awards competition.

The three projects selected and their respective categories include: Cboe Global Markets HQ (Financial); the Museum of Tolerance LA’s Claudia and Nelson Peltz Social Lab (Museum/Art Gallery); and the University of Illinois Chicago School of Medicine Surgical and Innovation Training Lab (Healthcare).

Each year, Interior Design’s Best of Year program recognizes premier design work, architects, products and manufacturers from across the globe. It has become a remarkable measure of design excellence. Winners for all Best of Year categories will be announced next week via live-streamed events.

Below is a bit more about each of the three finalist projects.

Cboe Global Markets HQ
Cboe’s dynamic new HQ located in the historic Chicago Old Post Office is a state-of-the-art workplace occupying four floors within two unique buildings with world-class features and amenities. The vibrant environment reflects Cboe’s dynamic industry and culture and is infused with commissioned artwork, unique branding moments, custom furniture, screens and lighting to enrich the experience and story for all.

Museum of Tolerance Los Angeles, Claudia and Nelson Peltz Social Lab
The  Social Lab is an incredibly immersive 10,000-sf interactive gallery experience, designed by our Yazdani Studio, that builds on the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s (SWC) mission to inspire people to take action against racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. Featuring 15 distinct spaces that bring the SWC’s remarkable content to life, the Social Lab promotes tolerance and inclusion on different scales — starting with individual biases, to local issues, national conflicts and global crises — highlighting the interconnectivity.

University of Illinois Chicago School of Medicine Surgical and Innovation Training Lab
The 17,000-sf College of Medicine’s Surgical and Innovation Training Lab (SITL) takes simulation and surgical education one step further by creating a space that will imagine, experiment and create the surgical rooms of the future and allow surgeons to train with the latest in robotic and minimally-invasive surgical tools.
