Ontario's Top Registered Interior Designers Celebrated at the 2015 ARIDO Awards Gala

Published on September 17, 2015

The Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) announced the winners of its annual Awards program during a gala dinner last night at the Hilton Toronto Hotel. One of the most highly regarded honours for the profession, the ARIDO Awards recognize excellence, innovation and creativity in interior design. This year’s winners include 2 Awards of Excellence and 21 Awards of Merit.  “Having the title (or role) "president" can have little meaning where the culture of the organization and more importantly, the profession itself is one that does not set itself apart from others. This is not the case for Registered interior designers in Ontario.” says Deanna Hayko, president of ARIDO. “I am fiercely proud of what the interior design community has achieved over the years ‎and continues to accomplish. “ says Hayko. “The strength and talent of the profession and its future is evident in tonight’s award winning projects.”
Evaluated by four esteemed representatives from business, media and design, each of the entrants were asked to confirm existing design elements, budget and project objectives, strategies employed, overall creativity, examples of project results, and sustainability and collaborative elements.
The Awards of Excellence were given in two categories demonstrating that good design can be employed wherever we live, work and play.
ARIDO member Tania Bortolotto of Bortolotto Design was honoured with an Award of Excellence for her design of the Finch Avenue Optometry. The second Award of Excellence was handed out to ARIDO members Guy and Heidi Painchaud B+H Architects for their project, Twitter Canada
