The competition, which concluded at The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) on Sunday, celebrated outstanding achievement across all major areas of design: architecture, interiors, furnishings, lighting, and technology.
The competition attracted 500 entries from over 100 designers and over 200 manufacturers, worldwide.
Mr Ericksen, the creator behind Plato Lighting – a kit-set lighting range that can be ‘played with’ to assemble new designs was the only Kiwi finalist across all 30+ categories.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be an NYCxDESIGN Award Honoree,” says Ericksen. “The New York design festival is the pinnacle of global design and to be selected as an award honoree – alongside some of the world’s best designers – is both exciting and humbling.”
