A stable of major talent: That’s precisely the case on August 4, as the Hamptons design industry celebrates its best and brightest at the sixth annual HC&G Innovation in Design Awards (IDAs) at the fabulous Campbell Stables in Bridgehampton.
Robert Campbell, founder and CEO of footwear giant BBC International, built the new 18-stall facility and 15,000-square-foot riding arena on close to 18 acres in Bridgehampton, and HC&G is the first to use the elite location for an event of this kind. Cocktails, followed by a dinatoire and the reveal of the winners in the categories of architecture and interior, garden, kitchen, bath, small space, and product design, will take place in the spectacular riding ring.
Architect Deborah Berke, who is the new dean of the Yale School of Architecture, will receive the 2016 Innovator Award. The New York–based Berke is being honored for designing spaces that are of lasting value and enhance the lives of their users—and we should know, as her own glorious residence in Manhattan was published in the September 2012 issue of our sister publication NYC&G.
Also attending is this year’s distinguished panel of judges: home accessories designer Aerin Lauder, interior designer Matthew Patrick Smyth, architects Russell Groves, Michael Haverland, and Lee Mindel, and event planner Ron Wendt.
