SEATTLE, March 22, 2024  |  The 7th Annual GRAY Awards Party, held last night in Seattle at Block 41, showcased design excellence in everything from a respite in a busy airport to a home office on rails. Guests from Prague, Mexico City, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and beyond were in attendance for the celebration.

Each year, the cross-disciplinary awards program invites the best and brightest in the fields of architecture, interiors, landscape, and product design to enter their work for a coveted opportunity: to be honored as one of the most exciting practitioners in design today.

The party dazzled as announcements of this year's winners took center stage. In true GRAY fashion, the evening began with a live string trio that enchanted the room with a medley of classic favorites. After indulging in a selection of signature cocktails by local distillery, OOLA - including a curated cocktail for GRAY Awards sponsor, Marvin, "The Marvin Yellow Rose," that featured OOLA vodka, lemon juice, rosewater, and freeze-dried yellow rose petals - guests celebrated winning announcements, a slurry of gold confetti, and an energy-filled dance party ending the night on a high-note!

In addition to the GRAY Awards Judges' category trophy winners, Breakout Category winners, Legacy Award winner, and Design for Good category winner, GRAY proudly announced this year's Editor's Choice, a project whose winner was gifted by GRAY Awards partner, Maison&Objet, with a special trip to Paris to visit the September iteration of the fair along with GRAY.
