Sustainability Trophy Wall

Tricycle's been honored with the 2007 Governor's Environmental Stewardship Award for leadership in pollution prevention from Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen.

It's latest in a string of recognitions given to us in the past couple of years, including,

  • the first-ever Gold IDEA award in Eco-Design from Business Week magazine and the Industrial Designers Society of America;
  • eco-leadership awards from the American Institute of Architects, American Society of Interior Designers, and International Interior Design Association;
  • and a nomination for a 2006 National Design Award for Corporate Achievement, from the Smithsonian Institution. Okay, we didn't win it. But the nomination was enough for us to smile in bewilderment!
The "streak" began in 2002 when we were awarded an IIDEX/NeoCon Canada Gold Award for Sustainable Design. Since there are a handful of these awards, we exhibit photographs of select trophies in our conference room, taped directly to the wall. It's the only (very) cheap format we could invent to standardized the presentation.

Earlier this year, we were also honored with graphic design awards from the Type Director's Club, AIGA Ten Show, Step Inside Design and the upcoming Print A+C=D Business Graphics Review. Looks like we'll need to buy some more yellow masking tape…

Our blog is mostly about sustainable design in the interiors industry,
especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
