The 2014 Housewares Design Award ceremony will mark the culmination the 11th year of the industry’s original and preeminent design competition.

The 2014 Housewares Design Awards ceremony also features the sixth annual Green House Award competition for eco-responsible housewares design. The 2014 Green House Award winner will be selected from among five finalists.

The 2014 Housewares Design Awards luncheon and ceremony is scheduled for February 4, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the New York Marriott Marquis hotel overlooking New York City’s Times Square. Each of the finalist designs will be on display during the Housewares Design Awards luncheon, to be attended by housewares business executives and consumer media.

HOMEWORLD BUSINESS® presents the Housewares Design Awards®. Sponsors of the 2014 Housewares Design Awards are NY Now: The Market for Home & Lifestyle; Whitford Corporation; and Gourmet Insider magazine.

An independent panel of design and merchandising experts convened in mid-November to judge the entries and select finalists, “Best in Category,” “Best of the Best” and “Green House” winners. Members of the selection committee assembled were excused from judging submissions for which they may have had any affiliation.

Housewares Design Awards finalists were chosen based on design believed to differentiate a product with unique appearance and/or function. The judges considered appropriate aesthetics, innovative materials and technology, user benefits (i.e., performance, comfort, ease of use, safety) and marketability.

Green House Award finalists were selected from a subdivision of entries and were not required to have been among the “Best in Category” finalists.

Products judged had to have been made available to consumers for the first time between October 1, 2012, and September 30, 2013. No prototypes were accepted.

Entries and judging are managed by Housewares Design Awards, LLC.
