Honoring new consumer products, graphics, and packaging designed and manufactured internationally, GOOD DESIGN Awards are well-regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious, recognized, and oldest design award programs organized annually by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art Design and Urban Studies and Metropolitan Press, Ltd.
“As a design conscious brand, we are gratified and honored to be among the recipients of this most meaningful and sought-after design award for our new MARINA Collection,” says Ward Usmar president of Pavilion. “Our collaboration with renowned designer Richard Frinier brought a unique perspective in styling and material selection that makes this design a standout for indoor and outdoor residential, contract, hospitality, yacht, and marine environments.”
MARINA from Pavilion pays homage to the storied history of Miami as a legendary destination locale for its nostalgic beachfront resorts and hotels in South Beach along Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue. The design is a contemporized interpretation of vintage and retro classic indoor/outdoor furniture updated with an innovative use of durable weather-resistant materials in trending yet timeless, calm and relaxing color ways. The overall styling of the new MARINA collection from PAVILION effortlessly creates a resort experience across exterior and interior dining and lounge areas with its welcoming and comfortable nautical design perfect for indoor/outdoor spaces.

Seven decades later the tradition continues and GOOD DESIGN has become officially synonymous with the leading and best contemporary design produced around the world as determined after intensive evaluation based on design quality true to the program’s historic motto, “In search of GOOD DESIGN” only the best of the best designs receive an award and winning creations are archived into the Museum’s permanent collection. GOOD DESIGN is the most sought-after international seal of outstanding design quality.
