Kornegay Design‘s Masaru Series Receives Architectural Record Recognition
(Phoenix, Arizona)— Architectural Record, the official publication of the American Institute of Architects, has honored Phoenix-based Kornegay Design, designers and manufacturers of cast concrete site furnishings, in choosing the firm’s Masaru Series landscape containers as one if it’s “Noteworthy Building Products of the Year” in it’s 2008 Annual Product Report.
The four beautifully crafted yet understated containers, which range in diameter from 30 to 60 inches, are scored with subtle horizontal bands and have distinct, sloping rims. Juror Peter Syrett, AIA described the Masaru’s “confident, straightforward design” as “very elegant”.
Architectural Record’s annual Product Reports recognize the highest standards in products serving the building industry. This year, according to AR editor Rita Orrell, the jury sought to, “find products strong both technically and aesthetically. Our jury… recognized that these days, products must work harder to earn space… in budgets and buildings.”
The recognition by Architectural Record is Kornegay Design’s second such honor. In 2005, the firm’s Dune Series landscape containers were also named as an outstanding product of the year.
