Czarnowski Earns Green Good Design Award
Czarnowski, a leading exhibit and event firm, has earned a Green Good Design™ Award for the exhibit it designed for sunglass manufacturer Costa Del Mar. The Green Good Design™ Awards, presented by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, honor sustainable innovation in product design, architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning, with the intent to instill a call of action among American and European institutions to “Design a Better World Now.” This year, over 120 architecture and design professionals, manufacturers and corporations from 27 countries were recognized.
The Costa Del Mar exhibit, which debut at ICAST 2010 was built using reclaimed pine wood from a 100 year-old barn in West Virginia. This building methodology reduced the exhibit’s environmental impact by 51,607 kg/co2E — approximately the equivalent of saving 5,930 gallons of gasoline. The concept for the exhibit—to create a rustic environment that resembled the cozy screen porch of a riverside cabin was originally developed by agency McGarrah Jesse. The exhibit also earned a Best of Booth Award from trade publication SNEWS.
“The Green Good Design idea is to challenge designers, architects, developers, contractors, corporations, and manufacturers to do a superior job in terms of protecting our environments, encouraging sustainability and recycling, using smart materials, conserving resources, and better understanding the social and political context for objects and buildings destined to be in our ever endangered living and working environments,” says Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine, president of The Chicago Athenaeum and chief curator of the Good Design program.
