Fall 2021: AN Interior
For the fourth year in a row, AN Interior presents its Top 50 list. Chosen by editors, the firms included here are all working at the forefront of the profession. The list is intentionally diverse by firm size, reputation (many are quite young, while others have been leading the pack for decades), demographics, geographic location in North America (including Mexico and Canada), and type of work—everything from large public and institutional projects to single family homes and installations. We hope you enjoy our selections.
For this issue’s cover story, we parse out three themes that guided the 2021 Milan Design Week. After a year and a half of postponements and cancellations, Salone del Mobile relaunched in early September, albeit in a slightly different guise, along with the Fuorisalone satellite exhibits. After endless months of Zoom-based talks and presentations, Milan was a breath of fresh air.
Other feature stories highlight an earthy Marfa suite by DUST Studio, an impressive feat of adaptive reuse in Washington State by Signal Architecture, a remodel of a 100-year-old Atlanta Craftsman house by ARCHITECTUREFIRM, and a new showroom for a Chinese fashion label by Rafael de Cárdenas.
