Additionally, on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. ET, the IDC will honour interior design community members’ achievements at this year’s live, and in-person, awards celebration. Hosted at Malaparte in Toronto, the event will celebrate winners of the 2022 Value of Design Awards (VODA), recognize participants of the PROpel Emerging Leaders program, winners of the Innovation in Design Thinking Student Competition, and recipient of the Legacy Award for Distinguished Service. 

IDC’s Value of Design Awards (VODA) shine a spotlight on Canadian interior designers by providing a forum to showcase the benefits of design thinking: an empathetic, inventive, and iterative process focused on the human experience within interior spaces. “These awards demonstrate the positive human and business impact of design thinking for the people and companies who hire a professional interior designer,” says the organization.
