July/August 2019

From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Azure’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

The jury’s choices weren’t the only celebrants at the AZ Awards Gala held at Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works last Friday; it was an occasion to recognize the recipients of the People’s Choice Awards as well. And while there were a few projects the voters and the jury could agree on – Interface’s Net Effect carpet tiles for Best Interior Product, and REX’s Media Headquarters and Scott Sullivan’s Tangent Clock in the Concepts categories – for the most part Azure readers broke with our panel of experts. It’s a poignant reminder that the jury’s job is a difficult one, and the projects that took home a trophy faced stiff competition.
