Daltile names 2016 Interior Design Scholarship winner

Home Press Release Daltile names 2016 Interior Design Scholarship winner

DallasDaltile, in partnership with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Foundation, named Kristina Tribell winner of the fifth annual Daltile Interior Design Scholarship. During NeoCon East 2016 in Philadelphia, Tribell was presented with a $10,000 scholarship to continue her education in the field of interior design.

This year’s design challenge, titled “Design Inspired by Nature,” was to redesign a hotel lobby using key biophilic design principles, demonstrating how thoughtful design, creativity, and Daltile products can come together to create a beautiful, welcoming, and impactful space.

Tribell chose the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Houston as her project location, redesigning the lobby to incorporate biophilic influences. Using Daltile collections, including Marble Attaché and Saddle Brook Glazed Porcelain, Tribell reinvented the space to be more calming, a stark contrast from the bustling city outside of the hotel lobby doors.

The grand prize winner and three finalists were selected by Daltile and the ASID Foundation with the help of a panel of industry experts. This year’s top scholarship recipients are:

  • Grand Prize ($10,000 scholarship): Kristina Tribell, The Art Institute of Houston
  • First Prize ($2,500 scholarship): Ali Guymon, Utah State University
  • Second Prize ($2,500 scholarship): Ben Roghaar, Utah State University
  • Third Prize ($2,500 scholarship): Charlotte Jolly, Indiana University

New for 2016, Daltile and the ASID Foundation awarded the school or university with the highest number of completed entries with a $10,000 grant for their interior design program. This year, Utah State University was presented with the grant and had 37 students from the university submit projects for consideration.
