Collab Design Excellence Award

Saturday, November 19,
5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. EST

Join us in honoring celebrated artists Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta, co-founders of DRIFT, with the Collab Design Excellence Award 2022 (DEA). DRIFT is a multidisciplinary studio that bridges the categories of art, design, and technology. Under Gordijn and Nauta’s leadership, the studio collectively produces sculptures, environments, and performances that offer striking commentaries and speculative imaginings about humanity’s entanglements with nature and technology.

This celebration brings together the design community and features remarks from the Collab Board, Sasha Suda, George D. Widener Director and CEO, and Lonneke Gordijn. This event will celebrate the opening of Rhythms of Nature: The Art and Design of DRIFT, on view throughout the evening.


Additional support provided by Roche Bobois North East, Haworth, Millésimé, Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design, and Eileen and Tony Tognini.

This event is part of the Collab program series.
