The designer has work in several international museums.
Michael Vanderbyl has 30 years under his belt as principal of his namesake firm, and the accolades are rolling in. The multidisciplinary designer is this year’s recipient of the IIDA Southern California Chapter’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Tonight, March 28, the award will be presented at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, during the 17th Annual IIDA Calibre Awards ceremony.
Tomorrow, Vanderbyl will be the guest of honor at the Teknion showroom in Santa Monica. Furniture manufacturer Teknion and textile manufacturer Luna Textiles will honor Vanderbyl with snacks and cocktails. The designer, who has work in the permanent collections of the Cooper Hewitt Museum (Smithsonian Institution), the Library of Congress, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum Die Neue Sammlung in Munich, established Vanderbyl Design in San Francisco in 1973. The multi-disciplinary firm now offers graphics, packaging, signage, interiors, showrooms, furniture, textiles, and fashion apparel.
The Teknion showroom event kicks off at 5pm. To RSVP, contact Tiana Pardini, Teknion A&D representative at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-902-1162. The showroom is located at 631 Wilshire Blvd., on the 2nd floor.
